People have lived in and around the Coatbridge area since the Stone Age. Yet, the history of Coatbridge itself dates back to the 12th century.
Records indicate that the monks of nearby Newbattle Abbey received a Royal Charter from King Malcolm IV. Together with neighbouring Airdrie, the region is now known as the Monklands for this reason.
By the late 18th century, Coatbridge had developed from a loose collection of hamlets into a fully functioning town. Further expansion came about due to the Industrial Revolution, at which point the area garnered a reputation for ironworks and coat mining.
Nowadays, however, it’s better recognised by the handful of Afternoon Tea Coatbridge establishments dotted around town.
