Traces of an old road
Traces of an old road
Receding directly from the photographer's position is a slight depression, which is a little grassier than the surrounding moor. These are the indistinct traces of an old road that is marked on an early-nineteenth-century map. See NS4480 : Traces of an old road for further information, and for another view; the present picture was taken from about 100 metres further along the same route.
Network of old limestone industry tracks :: NS4379
A very extensive network of ancient tracks on the moors in West Dunbartonshire links old quarries, ruined lime-kilns, and other sites connected with the local limestone-burning industry, which flourished in the 18th century. See LinkExternal link for a Geograph article about the network, and LinkExternal link for an annotated satellite view of it.
