Kilwinning

towns.jpg

Kilwinning town, which lies on the River Garnock a few miles inland from Ardrossan by way of busy Stevenston, is notable as the home of Freemasonry in Scotland. Mother Lodge Kilwinning (No 0) was founded in 1107, at the same time as the Abbey, of which the few remains have been incorporated into the present Parish Church.

Kilwinning was known earlier for its engineering works, iron foundry and fire-clay works and with an older worsted-spinning industry. With the advent of the railways, Kilwinning became known as 'The Crossroads of Ayrshire'.

Over recent years the town has grown considerably into the suburban sprawl linking Irvine in the south and Stevenston and Ardrossan to the north west.
