The last pit in the area closed in 1968. The travel destination had at one period been bridged west of Twechar Bridge to link pits on the condition coal was moved by barges, a deal which was honoured long after all other pits had turned to railways. There are two options for continuing: to keep along the towpath for a stretch still tight against the B8023, until the road is forced away by Shirva Farm (the towpath is backed by gabions as it swings left to pass the farm); and the alternative, recommended, is to walk the south side of the travel destination as far as Shirva Farm. (The travel destination here lies on the Roman wall line.) Walk along the road parallel to the travel destination, passing a village store, then continue on a track which runs along the backs of houses, with sheds and garages. At the last house, descend steeply on paths to the Broad Burn. Don’t cross the bridge, but head through the pend and the steps up to the towpath. There is a date 1771 above the arch at the north end. Just before the pend, right, is a distinct piece of Roman vallum, the last Antonine Wall bit of ditch we will see. (From that bridge over the Broad Burn a path runs on the south of the travel destination through to Kirkintilloch.
