Notes on the Geography of The United Kingdom: Glasgow Periphery: Photo 91

world pictures The United Kingdom: Glasgow Periphery

If we went from the Kibble Palace to the Winter Garden we'd have to cross the lazy Forth and Clyde Canal. It's about 35 miles long and runs from Bowling, on the Clyde, to Grangemouth, on the River Forth. The canal opened in 1790 and died a slow death until the 1960s, when parts of it were taken over for other uses, including the M8. An alternative alignment opened in 2002 and permits recreational boating from coast to coast.

Although the view is bucolic, a little study will suggest that the canal is narrowing here to run across an aqueduct. Indeed it is: this is the top of the River Kelvin Aqueduct.
