Spring in the field
Spring in the field
This is another part of the source of the River Kelvin jigsaw. Situated in a field behind the hamlet of Kelvinhead next to the road to Banton this mud spring bubbles from beneath and flows into the trees where the exposed burn flows in a gully.
This spring escapes from a culvert under the field. This culvert was laid prior to 1899 over which the tramway ran from Kelvin Jetty on the Forth & Clyde Canal through this field for a short distance and via the left side of Banton Road - following the line of the burn - and then past [Low] Banton to the pits near Binniemyre. O.S. Second Edition of 1899 Stirlingshire Sheet XXIX. N.W. refers.
The true source of the Kelvin is further up the Banton Road, south of Banton Kirk.
