The lade at Dalquhurn
The lade at Dalquhurn
The lade was built for the Dalquhurn Dye Works, which formerly occupied this site.

While the first half of the lade (as reckoned from its intake), has long been exposed (NS3977 : The lade at Dalquhurn), this outflowing half had long been covered by buildings. However, when this picture was taken, the lade was exposed to view as a result of demolition work which had recently cleared the area. It is being kept open as a feature of the new development, as can be seen in an equivalent view, captured two years after the present photograph was taken: NS3977 : The lade at Dalquhurn.

The houses in the background are in the Tontine area of Renton, and can also be seen in the later view of the lade (see the last-cited link).
