This morning I re-visited Linn Park at Cathcart to further investigate the industrial legacy of this now pleasant recreational area.

Deep inside a small copse I discovered the remains of a Lime Quarry and Kiln complex (as shown in video below) close to Linn House. This would have been active in the 19th century at a time when the adjacent area was by busy with coal mining, paper mills and textile working all centred on around the White Cart Water which was the main source of power.
