There are three neighbouring housing projects which lie just outside the town boundaries, Craigens, Logan and Netherthird, with the former ironworks settlement of Lugar also just outside the town, contributing to a population of around 13,000 in the immediate locale. A new housing development, Knockroon, was granted planning permission on 9 Dec, 2009 by East Ayrshire Council.

CreteAnogeiaTangoCrete (Greek: Κρήτη Kríti; [kriti]) is the largest and most populous of the Greek islands, the fifth-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea, and one of the thirteen administrative regions of Greece. It forms a significant part of the economy and cultural heritage of Greece while retaining its own local cultural traits (such as its own poetry, and music). Crete was once the center of the Minoan civilization (c. 2700–1420 BC), which is currently regarded as the earliest recorded civilization in Europe.

DalryTheCrossDalry is a small town in the Garnock Valley in Ayrshire, Scotland. Drakemyre is a northern suburb.

History

Dalry (from Scottish Gaelic: Dail Ruighe meaning "the haugh at the slope") is a small settlement on the Rye Burn. Its history has signs of early inhabitants in the area. The remains of an ancient fort made of three concentric round walls can be found on the summit of Carwinning Hill to the North of Dalry, west of the B784 to Largs. In 1883 excavations by John Smith of caves in the Dalry Blair estate at Cleeves Cove cave found evidence of prehistoric man and otter bones.

PaisleyPaisley (Scottish Gaelic: Pàislig) is the largest town in the historic county of Renfrewshire in the west central Lowlands of Scotland and serves as the administrative centre for the Renfrewshire council area. The town is situated on the northern edge of the Gleniffer Braes, straddling the banks of the White Cart Water, a tributary of the River Clyde.

The town, a former burgh, forms part of a contiguous urban area with Glasgow, Glasgow City Centre being 6.9 miles (11.1 km) to the east. The town came to prominence with the establishment of Paisley Abbey in the 12th century, an important religious hub in mediaeval Scotland which formerly had control over the other churches in the local area.

GlasgowDukeStreetHospitalAlthough there are many complaints made nowadays about the level of service available from the National Health Service, it is difficult now to conceive of the conditions in previous centuries when access to medical aid was largely the province of the rich and powerful. The poor had to depend upon the charity of others, which tended to be sporadic and often meagre. Occasional support was on offer from the Glasgow's Town Council when finances allowed for this. Recourse was often made to the Kirk which tried to maintain its traditional role with regard to succouring the ailing and needy even after the Reformation left it with far less resources than before.

KilwinningAbbeyKilwinning (Scottish Gaelic: Cill Fhinnean) is an historic town in North Ayrshire, Scotland. It is known as The Crossroads of Ayrshire. Kilwinning was also a Civil Parish.

The 2001 Census[2] recorded the town as having a population of 15,908. At the 2011 Census Kilwinning had a population of 16,109.

History

North Ayrshire has a history of religion stretching back to the very beginning of missionary enterprise in Scotland. The Celtic Christians or Culdees of the period of St Columba and St Mungo found here, in this part of Scotland, a fertile field for the propagation of the faith. Kilmarnock, Kilbride, Kilbirnie, are all, like Kilwinning, verbal evidence of the existence of 'Cillean' or cells of the Culdee or Celtic Church.
