Posts on the shore
The lines of posts visible here at NS4074 : Dumbarton Foreshore are located within what was formerly a timber pond; logs that were to be used in shipbuilding were seasoned and preserved in seawater by being stored here until needed. The timber pond is not shown on the 1864 OS map, but the equivalent 1899 map shows it.

(For other views, see NS4074 : Posts on the shore / NS4074 : Posts on the shore / NS4074 : Posts on the shore.)

It is not clear whether the posts date from that period, or if they are instead from later developments on the same site. The posts were present in the 1940s; however, by that time the area was being used by Dumbarton's Blackburn Aircraft Factory.

For what are indisputably remains of the timber pond itself, see NS4074 : Remains of a timber pond.
