New Road and Garngour Road, Lesmahagow
New Road runs between Bankhouse Road and Garngour Road, A short road at the Garngour Road end, Cordiner Road, provides access to New Trows Road and down to the village. Most houses are stone buildings typical of this area.
Garngour Road provides access to the farms of North and South Garngour at the top of the hill. The road originally went down straight to New Trows Road to join opposite Bakers Brae. This narrow section is now for pedestrians only and a new route formed by entering New Road and then linked to New Trows Road through the more-recently constructed Cordiner Road.
These photographs were taken on the 7th and 9th March 2016, unless stated otherwise.
