The intake of the lade is shown here: NS3977 : The Lade at Dalquhurn Renton (that photo was taken only a few metres away from this one, and parts of the same metal bridge are visible in both images, and in NS3977 : Former railway bridge over a lade).

The lade was created for the dyeing industry that used to flourish in this area; specifically, it was built for Dalquhurn Dye Works. In this photograph, the direction of flow is away from the photographer's position. As the most notable such feature in the area, it is simply referred to locally as "the Lade".

This part of the lade has always been exposed to view. However, at the time this photo was taken, another section that had long been covered had only recently been exposed as a result of demolition work: NS3977 : The lade at Dalquhurn. It is being kept open as a feature of the housing development at that site; see NS3977 : The lade at Dalquhurn.
