Campsie Fireclay Mine, Lennoxtown, East Dunbartonshire

Campsie Clay Mine, Lennoxtown, East Dunbartonshire.?

From the map below this mine could be named Tarfin, Campsie of Finniescroft. Balglass is also a 1/2 mile to the North. (Note – SBH – I wonder if this is one source of the fireclay used by the Glenvault Fireclay Company – later named the Glenvault and Campsie Fireclay Lime and Coal Co Ltd)

Below – 1859 – Campsie Clay Mine. The Fireclay mine is not referenced on the 1896 map.
