Calderbank Fireclay Mine, Airdrie, North Lanarkshire

Established to supply the Calderbank Steel Works with fireclay and firebricks. Source Kenneth W Sanderson. (Note – SBH – The Monkland Iron and Steel Works are shown on the 1859 map. These were detailed as the Calderbank Steel Works by 1897 so these Fireclay Works appeared to have supplied the Monkland site prior to it being the Calderbank site.)

Below – 1859 – Calderbank Fireclay Works – bottom centre of map. Note the fire clay mine to top right. Neither are marked on the 1897 map.
