Basin Iron Foundry (1872-1960)


Description

This foundry was on the west side of the canal basin in Kirkintilloch. The works made domestic cast iron goods such as stoves.

A siding ran from the Monkland and Kirkintilloch Railway round the west side of the double basin to reach the works from the south east.

The site was cleared and overgrown by the 1960s.

It was also known as the Etna Foundry.
