Genealogy Tours of Lesmahagow, Scotland. A small Scottish town on the edge of moorland, near Lanark in the central belt of Scotland, and is also known as Abbey Green. Lesmahagow was a site of the ancient Celtic Church of Scotland. The monks of the Priory were nearly all excommunicated for practicing the 'Celtic Rite' which was seen as heresy. The town has two Christian congregations in the Church of Scotland, namely Lesmahagow Old Parish Church and Abbeygreen Church, plus churches of other denominations. Lesmahagow Priory, founded by Benedictine monks in 1144, no longer stands but its foundations were excavated in 1978 and can be seen next to the Old Parish Church off Church Square.
