There’s something uplifting to see flowers out on the high street, especially at this time of year. To continue where I left off on the last blog post, this is Flowers by Lesley Strachan, on Lanark High Street, always a welcome blaze of colour whatever the season.
Established in 1853 Brooks is one of Scotland’s oldest family businesses. ‘Cross Keys Close’ links the High Street with North Vennel beyond.
High Street lies in the centre of the town’s conservation area which acknowledges the variety of shop fronts which enhance the town’s character.
I would love to know a little more about the history of these buildings – perhaps time for another visit to the reference library. Meanwhile, if you know anything that I can add to this archive, please do get in touch.
McKellars are a long established award winning jeweller here in Lanark, winning the Best Specialised Retailer for South Lanarkshire and Best Gift Shop in Lanarkshire 2019.
This drawing of the High Street concludes with Flowers of Scotland and Hunter’s Close.
