Forth and Cart Junction Canal

A short spur of the Forth and Clyde Canal at Clydebank, the Forth and Cart Junction Canal extended the Forth and Clyde for a half-mile (1 km) south to the north bank of the River Clyde opposite the River Cart; the White Cart Water being navigable to Paisley. The building of the canal was authorised by an Act of Parliament in 1836 and completed in 1840, with three locks. It closed in 1893, was filled in and little evidence of it remains.
