Biggar is a picturesque town in the South-East of South Lanarkshire adjacent to the Borders. Its wide main street is typical of many market towns in Southern Scotland and North England and contains many interesting buildings, as I hope the photographs show.

Houldsworth Centre, Wishaw. 10th May 2021
The modern Houldsworth Centre was opened in mid-August 2015, a joint undertaking betwen NHS Lanarkshire and North Lanarkshire Council. It effectively replaced ageing and inadequate facilities for Wishaw Health Centre and Wishaw library and includes the Municipal Bank, Municipal Services (Housing),Social Services, and community health services. A cafe on the ground floor seen in photo with large windows provides a service for staff and visitors and a two-storey car park opposite provides parking. Central atria within the building give light and space. Taken on my visit to the Diabetic Eye Screening Clinic on 10th May.
