From "British Archaeology", November 1998:

"Perhaps the most striking example of abandonment is Haywood on remote moorland in South Lanarkshire. Founded in the 1860s to house the workers of the nearby collieries, it developed by the 1890s into a village of over 1,200 inhabitants, with a Post Office, a Police Station, a village hall, a railway station - all the services one would expect of any thriving rural community. Then, as the mines around closed, it declined as rapidly as it had developed, and by 1951 there were only 15 households recorded in the district. Today the only intact structure is the war memorial; around it the terraces have gone, their bricks removed for use elsewhere, leaving only robber trenches to indicate their layout.

The most substantial ruin on the site, once the licensed hotel, is a former farmhouse which predated the village. On a windowsill it bears a carved lament to the desolation, addressed to a former licensee:


O Annie wert thou here tae see, A waefu [woeful] wumin thou wad be. "

Here is the War Memorial mentioned above:
