Architecture Notes

NS56NE 1702 NS 5885 6699.

This old timber basin, now clogged with weeds, was created on the offside of the canal by widening the cut on a sharp bend, in similar fashion to the Firhill Basin (NS56NE 1697).

The Forth and Clyde Canal Guidebook 1991.

This former timber basin is now very clogged with weeds.

H Brown 1997.

This basin is clearly shown on the 1st edition of the OS 6-inch map (Lanarkshire 1865, sheet vi)
