Fairly Inaccessible Pond just off Adambrae Road
Fairly Inaccessible Pond just off Adambrae Road
Have driven past here numerous times without realising this pond existed - as can be seen it is mostly covered in vegetation. Is fed from Adambrae Burn, which has no official name on any maps, where it reappears from underneath the roundabout. Would be interesting to know the history of this burn, as looking at old maps, it once led, entirely overground, to a well slightly North of where the pond is. On later maps up until the last old map available online from the 1960s, it disappeared underground at the location the pond is now situated at, emerging further North after going underneath a slag heap, in roughly the same place the old well was situated. The pond now drains into a culvert, re-emerging past the houses, at the far corner of Bluebell Glade.
