NS3977 : Former railway bridge over a lade

taken 9 years ago, near to Renton, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

Former railway bridge over a lade
Former railway bridge over a lade
The metal-sided bridge is shown from the other side in NS3977 : The Lade at Dalquhurn Renton. As shown there, it crosses NS3977 : The lade at Dalquhurn. The footpath in the left of the present photograph leads from Dalquhurn to the footpath and cycle route that follows the western side of the River Leven.

The little bridge now carries that footpath and cycle route over the lade (NS3977 : Former railway bridge over a lade), but what it originally led over the lade was a railway line that followed the same route. That line served the works at Dalquhurn and the Cordale. The Barclay 0-4-0 locomotive that travelled on it was known locally as the Pug; for more on that topic, see NS3977 : Former course of railway line (Dalquhurn Works) and NS3977 : The Howgate.
