Making History: Can you find and photograph this Lost Covenanter’s grave? #History #Scotland. It is near #Wishaw & #Motherwell

Arthur Inglis Cambusnethan 1

The grave of Arthur Inglis, who was killed in 1679, lay in St Michael’s Churchyard near Netherton, also known as Old Cambusnethan. It was there in the 1960s, but has been vandalised and may have disappeared. This picture indicates the location of where it should be in the graveyard:

If you can find it and photograph it, please get in touch so we can share your discovery, either via twitter @drmarkjardine or jardinesbookofmartyrs [at] gmail.com

UPDATE: The news about the grave site is not good, as it appears almost nothing is left.

The site where Arthur Inglis was killed lies nearby.

Both pictures, above, with thanks to Robert French for his very kind permission to share these photographs. Also thanks to Tookie Bunten for arranging that. Do not reproduce these photographs without permission.

  1. Hello Dr Jardine

    I haven’t been in the Graveyard myself but I follow a Facebook page called Lost Houses of the Clyde Valley who regularly post photo’s of the region. On 4th Oct 2015 a lady called Alison Alder posted some pictures from the St Michael’s Graveyard which now looks in a very sorry state and I’m sure the stone enclosure is amongst her photo’s, no sign of the stone cross though unless it’s under some nettles.

    Also the Friends of Cambusnethan Priory may be able to help out with Archive photo’s.

    Hope this helps
