NS4760 : Beside a path in Glen Park

Beside a path in Glen Park
Beside a path in Glen Park
The path can be seen on the left. On the right is a ditch that runs parallel to it. Between them are some stones that look like pieces of a building or wall. Maps from 1895 onwards show a woodland boundary just south of and parallel to the path. The ditch in the picture is probably a relic of that boundary, and it is possible, though less likely, that the stones were also associated with it.

The first-edition OS map (1860) shows a well near here, the Butter Well. Like the nearby Tea Well, it does not appear on later maps. The Rock Well does, though it is simply labelled "well". All three are among the places whose names were assigned by the Rev Patrick Brewster of nearby Craigielinn House (see Link for further comments). Craigielinn House itself is long gone.
