The former site of Glen House
Glen House, now long gone, occupied the level area shown here, extending back from the path almost as far as the embankment in the background. See NS4760 : The former site of Glen House for another view of the area, and for more details.
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).
