NO4102 : Old river ford, Lower Largo

Old river ford, Lower Largo
Old river ford, Lower Largo
This ramp, leading down to the Keil Burn near the bottom of Drummochy Road, was once a ford over the burn. It was 1914 before a vehicular bridge over the Keil Burn at Lower Largo harbour was built. Before that a wooden footbridge allowed pedestrians to cross the burn dry-shod but wagons and carts still had to ford the burn (tide permitting) - down the ramp, turn left (right in this image), proceed under the footbridge (and the railway viaduct once it had been built) to a point some distance upstream to where Seatoun Place is now situated to gain the opposite bank. After the vehicle bridge was built the ford fell into disuse but the ramp was still used as boat access to the harbour, hence the concrete surface which is not original. There is no trace left of the Seatoun Place end of the ford.
