Croy Station

The village of Croy is located a mile (1.5 km) south of Kilsyth in North Lanarkshire. The village developed from the mid-19th C. in conjunction coal and ironstone mining and more recently as a dormitory village for Glasgow. It benefits from a post office, a busy railway station, the Antonine Community Sports Hub (2012), Holy Cross Primary School (1965, extended 2007), Holy Cross Church (1902) and Croy Shrine (dedicated to the Virgin Mary). Several quarries surround the village, most are disused but the largest, Croy Quarry, is still active for the extraction of quartz-dolerite for use as aggregate. To the northeast of the village on Croy Hill are remnants of the Antonine Wall, including a Roman Fort and two beacon platforms.
