Carluke Parish Historical Society
After a talk by Mr Pearce, a steering committee was formed. The first AGM was held in the Community Centre in Carnwath Road on 25th January 1979, when our name and constitution were formally adopted.

Over the years, CPHS has added to our extensive archive. The computer and digital age has helped us greatly in copying and preserving records and photographs. - gone are the days of dark rooms and negatives, we now have a scanner and computer which do the work at the touch of a button.
Our speakers have always gone out to spread the word about or rich and varied history.
After much fundraising, we acquired our Heritage Centre in 1986. All are welcome at our monthly open mornings to browse and chat about Carluke. Visitors come from all over the world and the Centre can be opened at any time to make our rrecords available to researchers. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
HIGHLIGHTS IN OUR HISTORY,1978-1988.
Probably the highlight of these early meetings was the ‘High Street Shops‘ night. Those who were there will not have forgotten Eddie Cunningham at one end of the hall and Miss Burton at the other trumping each other with their memories of the old town! Gradually attendance grew causing us to change venue four times.
It has taken ten years for us to find somewhere to house our archives but we finally did with a great deal of help from our members and the people of Carluke.
