NS7778 : Forth & Clyde Canal, overflow

taken 8 years ago, near to Banknock, Falkirk, Great Britain

Forth & Clyde Canal, overflow.
Forth & Clyde Canal, overflow.
It looks quite natural but its artificial. The overflow from the canal flows down into the Bonny Water which runs parallel to the canal at this point.
An interesting aside to this is that the summit of the canal is fed by water flowing from a burn which joins the Kelvin south east of Kilsyth. Some of the excess it would seem goes to the Forth by way of this overflow rather the Clyde to which nature intended it to.
