Mossend Bridge

A network of lines spreading west from Glengarnock connected several ironstone pits with the ironworks at Glengarnock but all were worked out by the early twentieth century and so iron ore had to be imported. One tangible reminder of these lines is this substantial bridge which permitted one of these lines to pass under what is now the B780 between Kilbirnie and Dalry. It will be well over 100 years since it last saw a train.
