    Personal Injury Solicitors in Lochgelly

    Lochgelly is a town within the Fife region of Scotland, which is situated close to the larger settlement of Cowdenbeath. The town can be found between the Lochs known as Loch Ore and Loch Gelly and it is from this body of water that the town takes its name.

    The Etymology Of Lochgelly

    It doesn’t take a detective to realise that the town takes its name from the nearby Loch Gelly, but the name of the Loch itself has a pleasing etymology which derives from Gaelic. The Gaelic translation of Loch Gelly is Loch Gheallaidh which can be translated as meaning either ‘shining waters’ or the ‘loch of brightness’, evoking idyllic scenes of a historic Scottish Loch in sunshine. It is an unfortunate fact however, that the recent history of the town is nowhere near as idyllic or pleasant a story.

    Recent History Of Lochgelly

    From around the 1830s for approximately 130 years, Lochgelly was a town that was intrinsically linked with mining and everything associated with it. It was mining which provided the town with its major source of income and it was miners and their political leanings which earned the town the nickname of “Little Moscow”. It was this utmost reliance on mining, therefore, which caused the town to suffer a huge degree of economic decline and deprivation when the pits closed in the 1960s.

    Lochgelly In The Modern Age

    The story of Lochgelly in the modern age is therefore one largely made up of attempted recovery from the aforementioned deprivation. One of the key steps in making this recovery was with the coming of the company known as Andrews Antennas to the region. This brought both jobs and economic activity to the town, and as such gave a small spark for a potential recovery.

    Human Effect Of Economic Difficulties

    In spite of the early signs of recovery, it is still an unfortunate fact that for many workers in Lochgelly, their life is very much a case of keeping their head above water. For this reason therefore, something like an unexpected injury which wasn’t your fault will inevitably lead you to discuss phrases like no win no fee* Lochgelly residents.
