Stockingfield or Lochburn Road Aqueduct

Designed in the 1780s by Robert Whitworth and built between 1784 and 1790 the original Stockingfield Aqueduct (NS57126899) and road tunnel arch survive, carrying the main line of the canal over Lochburn Road. At the end of the nineteenth century a ferry operated here for the convenience of pedestrians wishing to cross over to the other towpath to Bowling or to Port Dundas.

A floating bridge had also existed here to allow easy access of horses and pedestrians to the towpath on the other side of the canal junction
