Walls with a sinister purpose
Walls with a sinister purpose
Wall around Ravenscraig Park built in the 1890s by Michael Barker Nairn to close off the coastal path. It is said that at one time the locals were demolishing one end, as the other was being built. The "get off my land" types have always had a tough time in Scotland. Now that it is a public park, there are numerous holes in the wall which no doubt now serves a more useful purpose as a lichen habitat.
