NS4760 : The former site of Glen House

taken 1 year ago, near to Glenburn, Renfrewshire, Great Britain

The former site of Glen House
The former site of Glen House
The house occupied the flat area near the centre of the picture. As a result of creating a level space on a slope, there are embankments on three sides; the one to the south of the house can be seen on the left, with trees at the top. The present view is from the embankment to the east of the house; hence the drop in level just a few metres ahead.

That feature can be seen at the back in a view in the opposite direction: NS4760 : The former site of Glen House. On the remaining side (the north) of the house, down the slope, the ground falls away in terraces: NS4760 : Terraces in front of the site of Glen 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).
