NS4760 : Terraces in front of the site of Glen House

taken 2 years ago, near to Glenburn, Renfrewshire, Great Britain

Terraces in front of the site of Glen House
Terraces in front of the site of Glen House
As the end-note explains, the house had an embankment near three of its sides (see NS4760 : The former site of Glen House), and some lower terraces on the remaining side, as shown in this picture. Those terraces led down to a garden associated with the house.
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).
