NS3678 : Old boundary on Carman Muir

taken 10 years ago, near to Renton, West Dunbartonshire, Great Britain

Old boundary on Carman Muir
Old boundary on Carman Muir
A rocky ridge LinkExternal link cuts E-W through this system; for one of the boundaries to its south, see NS3778 : Old boundary on Carman Muir. That boundary continues, although indistinctly, over the ridge. Part of its continuation to the north of the ridge is shown in the present photograph as a low curving boundary. The area within that old boundary is distinctly darker; satellite imagery shows it to be furrowed E-W, and it appears that, as a result of former agricultural use, there is still some difference between the soil inside and outside.
Carman Muir field system :: NS3778

A hitherto unreported system of old agricultural boundaries associated with Carman farmstead. Satellite imagery shows traces of furrows within this system. See LinkExternal link for an annotated satellite view of the field system.

The farmstead see Link (in a Geograph article) was represented in the early twentieth century by Carman House (at c.NS37287858); see LinkExternal link for the remains of Carman House. See LinkExternal link for an enclosure where horses used to be sold. That enclosure, which is just to the north of Carman House, is apparently part of the same field system.
