Carronshore Road
Carronshore Road
The central one of these three houses in Carronshore Road, Carron, is called "Keswick Cottage". It was so named by the man who had it built. He had been unable to pay for the honeymoon in the Lake District that his fiancee had asked him for but years later named this, the first home they owned, "Keswick" in a form of compensation. (Not many people know this but I happen to, as he was my paternal grandfather, who was head pattern-maker in the Carron Iron Works which at that time was just a few hundred yards behind the camera position.)
