Showcase Leisure Park, Bargeddie

Located northeast of the junction of the M73 and M8 motorways, Bargeddie is a small town of North Lanarkshire. Situated 2 miles (3 km) west of Coatbridge town centre, Bargeddie grew, along with neighbouring Cuilhill and Drumpark in association with the mining of coal. In the late 1940s a major housing estate was created to accommodate an influx of inhabitants from Glasgow and the surrounding areas. The adjacent Showcase Leisure Park offers a cinema, bowling and fast-food outlets.

A modest amount of gas was discovered here in a well drilled into the West Lothian Oil-Shale Formation of Carboniferous-age rocks in 1989.
