NS8350 : Possible remains of aqueduct

Possible remains of aqueduct
Possible remains of aqueduct
These small brick columns are located near the corner of a field, a short distance to the west of the railway bridge: NS8350 : Railway Bridge beside Carluke Railway Station. They are about 65 metres from Station Road (the photo was taken from the roadside). The embankment visible in the background is that of the railway line.

I did not find any archaeological reports for this location, but the 1:10560 OS map of 1899 shows a fairly short aqueduct at this spot, running in the same direction as the line of columns (parallel to the railway line). It therefore seems likely that these columns are the remains of the small aqueduct. The date of its construction can be narrowed down a little: it is not shown on the equivalent OS map from 1864.
