River Calder at Caldervale

 

Pictured a few years ago is the River Calder. The location at this point is little known, as it’s a slightly remote just beyond where ‘Fin Me Oot’ was (Caldervale).

On the boundary of Blantyre and Newton, the photos are just beyond the small footbridge not far north of the railway. I have to admit, I’ve never been there before, but its certainly on my “to do” list.

With thanks to Alex Rochead for these pictures. More photos of this area tomorrow.
