I'll resize the oversize pics tomorrow when photobucket catches up

Been meaning to get back up here for ages. Finally found the time.
explored with my daughter, "Toots".

Cochno Waterworks were built around 1907 and went offline around 1995 or so. Planning permission is imminent for a 32 bed nursing home on the site seemingly.

so first view you get as you drive up

watertower looks promising till you notice someone has cut off the bottom part of the ladders. note to self, time to buy a telescopic ladder.

getting through here was even tighter than it looked

helluva little space between this ladder and the wall and only a tiny opening above so I did the decent thing and sent Toots up instead

loads more to see in there and the view from the watertower over the clyde valley must be phenomenal. worth a return visit with a ladder.
