Mortgage Advisor Motherwell

The town of Motherwell is home to around 30,311 people according to the most recent census, and is situated to the south-east of the city of Glasgow. It is thought that the original settlement dates back to Roman times, with the road that was built then still running through the town, on the north west side. At the point where the road crosses the South Calder Water once stood a fort and a bath house, however both of these were removed when the Romans were no longer present in Scotland, so they were only a part of the surroundings for a relatively short period of time.
 
Originally, there were only around 600 people living in the area, most of whom were responsible for farming the surrounding land. This changed when the railway was built in 1848, as this meant that whereas farming was the only industry in the area before, the town was now very much linked with the industrial revolution of the time. Just four decades on from this, the population had grown to 13,800 people.
 
Today, although the same types of industry aren’t present to the same extent as they once were, the area continues to thrive, with a great number of people choosing to live and work in the area. This is largely thanks to job opportunities in the service industry, as this gave people the chance to base themselves and their careers in Motherwell.
 
With regards to the lifestyle of the area, there is no doubt that there is plenty to occupy both residents and visitors to the area. If you hold an interest in sport, then there are several options, including football, motor racing and rugby union. There are also several sports which are not as common in Scotland, including hockey. If you like to keep fit, then you have the option to choose from a number of beautiful and scenic cycle paths, or you can take part in athletics at one of Motherwell’s many clubs. If you would like to mix sport with beautiful scenery, then the golf course is without a doubt worth a visit.
 
There are many other attractions in the area, including a theme park, Roman remains, and many places of interest when it comes to finding somewhere to take a walk. Thanks to the fact that the town was one of the venues for the Commonwealth Games in 2014, much of the area was upgraded ready for the event, meaning that the town looks modern and in great shape.
