PARKHEAD, a village, forming part of the late quoad sacra parish of Camlachie, in the parish of Barony, suburbs of the city of Glasgow, county of Lanark, 1 mile (E.) from Glasgow; and containing 1150 inhabitants. This populous village is situated on the Clyde river, in the vicinity of the Glasgow waterworks, and in a district abounding in coal and iron mines, in which a large part of the population is employed, as well as in hand-loom weaving, and various other branches of manufacture. The water-works here were erected in 1806; the water of the river is filtered through sand-banks, and then conveyed to the city.
