During Summer July 1932, a large number of Glasgow men admitted to camping illegally on farmland on private property near Blantyre Ferme Colliery near Netwon.
The accused said they were part of a camping club where it was customary to leave Glasgow on a Sunday and camp overnight, noting they had never been in trouble before. Each were fined 5 shillings. Pictured are the farmers fields adjacent to Blantyre Ferme Colliery in the same decade as this story, and perhaps even the very field the men were ousted from!
