NS4076 : Aitkenbar Circle, Bellsmyre

taken 7 years ago, near to Bellsmyre, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

Aitkenbar Circle, Bellsmyre
Aitkenbar Circle, Bellsmyre
In the distance, the upper part of a couple of the high flats in Bellsmyre can be seen, just left of centre; for those, see NS4076 : Bellsmyre High Flats.

The street name preserves the name of a farm that was located near this spot, and which was recorded on the first-edition OS map (c.1860) as Aitkenbarr, and on some later maps as "Aitken Barr". In Roy's Military Survey of Scotland (1740s-50s), the same location is simply called "Barr".

Further ahead, on the far side of NS4076 : Whiteford Avenue, Bellsmyre, a continuation of this road is called NS4076 : Aitkenbar Drive, Bellsmyre.
