Scope and Content Hallside Steel Works, Newton, Lanarkshire This was the first large-scale steel works in Scotland, founded in 1871 by the Steel Company of Scotland. This became part of Colvilles Ltd in the 1930s, and was converted to make alloy steels by Clyde Alloy Ltd in 1959. This view shows the works power station, which housed the Ilgner set used to supply the electricity for the rolling mills, the motor for the finishing mills (in the centre) and associated switchgear etc. Clyde Alloy Ltd was a Colville subsidiary set up in 1936 to make stainless and other alloy steels. The conversion of Hallside to make such steels was a reflection of growing demand in the post-war period. The works closed c.1979. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
