Lord Belhaven's Pet Cemetery in Wishaw, Lanarkshire, Scotland.

This pet cemetery was established by the 11th Lord Belhaven, Robert Edward Archibald Hamilton and Lady Belhaven, Kathleen Gonville Bromhead sometime in the latter half of the 1800's and the earliest legible headstone is dated 1869 and the latest dated headstone is 1919.

Most of the headstones relate to dogs but there is also a headstone for Polly, a grey parrot. The surrounding woodlands also contain various memorial stones relating to hunting horses who were buried where they fell.

Unfortunately, the pet cemetery has been ignored and left unprotected by North Lanarkshire Council and has been vandalised quite extensively with no headstones left standing and some of the headstones have now been broken.

    I can't believe I found this on the web! I just finished writing a story about this place on my blog and was looking for info on the Belhaven estate - and happened upon this photo. When I was young there were a lot more headstones (including ones with carved horses' heads). I've lived in Canada for years - but I remember both the pet cemetery and 'snowdrop paradise' so very well. Thanks for sharing these photos.

    Questa è una vista generale di Europe

    Europe is generally agreed to be the birthplace of western culture, including such legendary innovations as the democratic nation-state, football and tomato sauce.

    The word Europe comes from the Greek goddess Europa, who was kidnapped by Zeus and plunked down on the island of Crete. Europa gradually changed from referring to mainland Greece until it extended finally to include Norway and Russia.

    Don't be confused that Europe is called a continent without looking like an island, the way the other continents do. It's okay. The Ural mountains have steadily been there to divide Europe from Asia for the last 250 million years. Russia technically inhabits "Eurasia".

    Europe is presently uniting into one political and economic zone with a common currency called the Euro. The European Union originated in 1993 and is now composed of 27 member states. Its headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium.

    Do not confuse the EU with the Council of Europe, which has 47 member states and dates to 1949. These two bodies share the same flag, national anthem, and mission of integrating Europe. The headquarters of the Council are located in Strasbourg, France, and it is most famous for its European Court of Human Rights.

    In spite of these two bodies, there is still no single Constitution or set of laws applying to all the countries of Europe. Debate rages over the role of the EU in regards to national sovereignty. As of January 2009, the Lisbon Treaty is the closest thing to a European Constitution, yet it has not been approved by all the EU states.
