Disappeared Villages

It may come as a surprise, there were two bustling villages on the perimeter of the Davie Kerr Heritage Walk, just over a hundred years ago.

The villages were built speedily by the mine owners, to accommodate the economic immigrants who came to Armadale seeking employment in the mines.
