TOLLCROSS BURN Tollcross Burn Tollcross Burn Tollcross Burn Sandyhills Burn Sandyhills Burn Sandyhills Burn Forest's Co Map J. Dunlop Esqr J. Baird, Factor Estate Map Mr Reid, Coal Pit Manager J. Todd, Glenduffhill 006.16 This Burn rises near Bargeddie in Old Monkland Parish & flowing past Swinton & Barrachnie forms the Boundary of the Parish for some distance. It flows past Sandyhills & Tollcross in this Parish & forms a Dam & a Mill Lade for Westthorn Mill, near which it enters the River Clyde. At each of the above named places this Burn bears the same name in flowing through them. Properly, there is no name belonging to it as applying to the whole, from where is rises until it enters the Clyde. Sandyhills is the central name on its course, & is as well known in that locality as "Tollcross Burn" is in the neighbourhood of the village & "House of Tollcross. As "Tollcross Burn" it cannot be said to apply farther than it is written on the Examination Traces. i.e. between the village of Sandyhills & where it enters the River Clyde. The only reason for "Tollcross Burn" being adopted for the name, is, that it is probable it bore the name of Tollcross before Sandyhills, Swinton, or Barrachnie, were in existence.
