NS3778 : Lower end of ditch

taken 13 years ago, near to Renton, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

Lower end of ditch
Lower end of ditch
This receding line of tufts of vegetation marks the course of a ditch. This channel is artificial, rather than being the natural course of a stream; it is perfectly straight, and stops short of the foot of the slope.

It runs WSW-ENE, from NS 3731 7857 to NS 3735 7858 (the upper and lower end, respectively). It is about 43 metres (140") long, and was evidently associated with a farmstead that was formerly located beside the upper end of the ditch, in the area in front of the clump of trees: NS3778 : The site of Carman House.
