This image was uploaded specially for the Domesday Reloaded project; the original picture, which I have tried to recreate, can be seen at LinkExternal link (at "BBC Domesday Reloaded").

[When I arrived, workmen were working on the road at the exact spot from which the original photograph had been taken. However, they were courteous and helpful, and I was fortunate in that they were due to finish up there for the day shortly after I had arrived.]

NS3477 : Cardross Old Parish Church can be seen in the background. The picture was taken from in front of the club house of Cardross Golf Club. The entrance that is visible not far ahead, on the left, leads to a house called Auchenfroe (after a burn that flows nearby; see below).

The two houses on the right-hand side of the road look much the same as they do in the original photograph. The more distant of the two is called Glenview, and the other is Westburn Cottage. The most noticeable difference in the content of the two pictures, apart from the horse and rider, is the bus stop and shelter. Between the photographer's position and the church in the background, the road crosses the Auchenfroe Burn by means of NS3477 : Moore's Bridge.
