Description:

Complementing Old Hillfoots and Old Alloa, this third Clackmannanshire title by Guthrie Hutton encompasses a number of the county's smaller towns and villages. In addition to those places mentioned in the title, pictures of Cambus, Kennet, Castlebridge Colliery, Forestmill, the Gartmorn Dam, Fishcross, Devon Village, Devon Colliery, Marchglen, Coalsnaughton and Glenochil Mine are included too. There's some fascinating industrial history here: water from the Gartmorn Dam was used to drive powerful water wheels which drove pumps to dry out coal mines belonging to the 6th Earl of Mar, while almost 300 years later Glenochil Mine was sunk near Tillicoultry, only to prove to be an enormously costly white elephant. Elsewhere in the book many other aspects of life in these rural areas is covered.
