Former kitchen garden of Glen House
Former kitchen garden of Glen House
The photograph was taken from the gate of the garden. A sheet attached to the gate explains that this area, which is located in Glen Park, was the former kitchen garden of Glen House, and that it is now being put to use by members of the local community.

Glen House itself, now demolished, stood at NS47976066, only about 80 metres uphill from (i.e., to the south of) the centre of this garden. The former site of Glen House is now an open, level grassy space: see NS4760 : The former site of Glen House. Click on the end-note title for more pictures.
The former site of Glen House

The house, in what is now the Glen Park, is marked as "the Glen" on the 1913 OS map. When the 1940 map revision was prepared, the building had already been cleared away. The house was on a slope; the results of creating a level space for it can still be seen as a landscaped embankment on the uphill side (the south), two shorter ones to the east and west, and some lower terraces on the downhill side (the north).
