See NS3974 : Remains of a timber pond for the main description. The present photograph was taken beside a corner where two sides meet (see the link just cited, and NS3974 : Remains of a timber pond), and is a view along the line of the remains of the long outer side. This side was bounded by wooden posts, as the photograph shows, but it seems that stones also marked that boundary; a few of them are still present.

The photograph also serves to indicate the line of the outer side of the timber pond in relation to the present-day NS3974 : Buildings on Sandpoint (in the background).
Remains of a timber pond

Only faint traces now remain of a late nineteenth-century timber pond that formerly extended for about 150 metres along the Clyde shore between Levengrove Park and Sandpoint.
