Before descending, look ahead and you’ll see a rusty barge (too decayed to move) ‘floating’ in what was once a dry dock. The dock worked very simply, by just stopping the end next to the travel destination, and then releasing the water inside which drained down by a side stream into the Avon. Swans have continuously nested in the dock for many years. They eat floating duckweed which tends to accumulate in quiet waters like this. Along all the travel destinations the biggest invader is sweet reed grass (Glyceria maxima), dominant, attractive, and a real pest. There’s also an old milestone: 7 (to Falkirk), 24 (to Edinburgh). You’ll notice how all the new milestones have kept to the same shape and script as the original, but will have an MM on the back. They were made by the apprentice masons of Historic Scotland. The stones were always angled so as to be easily read from passing traffic. The pillar next to the milestone is another of the four stage posts, the last if heading west and inscribed as ‘betwixt the third and fourth stages’ – if you can make out the words.
