Before the Second World War, East Kilbride was a relatively small town several miles from the south of Glasgow. After the war, however, when the government was looking for sites to found new towns all over Britain, the village was chosen as one to house displaced Glaswegians and to ease the crowded city which had seen heavy bombing. Over time, the town grew and now there’s just a mile of countryside between East Kilbride’s north and Glasgow’s south, and on its east side it is starting to merge with Hamilton. The town is now treated as a suburb of Glasgow, and has a population of around 75,000.
The town has associations with more celebrities and musicians than it probably should for its size. The list of residents and ex-residents includes TV presenter Lorraine Kelly, MP Liam Fox, indie band the Jesus and Mary Chain, Aztec Camera singer Roddy Frame, footballer and manager Ally McCoist and Four Weddings actor John Hannah. George Orwell wrote Nineteen Eighty-four in the town when he was recovering from tuberculosis.
Although East Kilbride’s purpose is necessarily residential, there is some industry there, and the town has no fewer than six shopping malls. With its position so close to Glasgow, good transport links and industrial estates at its north west and south east sides, East Kilbride might be a good place to look for work in the Glasgow area.
