Scope and Content Lock-keeper's cottage, Lock 9, Forth & Clyde Canal, Falkirk This cottage was probably built in about 1848 to replace an earlier structure when a swing bridge carrying the Stirlingshire Midland Junction Railway was built over the Forth & Clyde Canal. This shows the cottage from the north-east, with the bottom gates of the lock cut down after the closure of the canal in 1962. The cottage differs from other lock-keepers' cottages on the canal by being significantly shorter, and having the roof overlapping the gable walls. The cottage was still occupied in 1966, probably by a British Waterways employee. Most of the keepers' cottages lasted for several years after closure, but almost all have now gone. This one survives, but has been modernised. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
