NS3980 : Remnants of the Alexandria Works

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

Remnants of the Alexandria Works
Remnants of the Alexandria Works
The first-edition OS map (surveyed in 1860) shows the Croftengea Print Works in this general area, although the large buildings shown here were not yet present. These works later merged with the Levenfield Works, which were just to the north, to form the Alexandria Works.

The equivalent OS map surveyed c.1897 shows this site as "Alexandria Works (Printing and Dyeing)", and the buildings shown in this view were then present. Because of the surrounding wall, they cannot be seen very well other than from a distance, as in a view of NS3980 : Linnbrane Hole. For another view of the blocked-up old entrance in front of the buildings, see NS3980 : Turkey Red Dye Works Gates Alexandria.

The present picture was taken from near the southern end of NS3980 : India Street, Alexandria (NS3980 : India Street Alexandria).
