006.08 "An artificial navigable communication between the City of Glasgoe & the district of Monkland in Lanarkshire. It commences in the northern suburbs of Glasgow, or rhather is prolonged westward there into junction at Port Dundas with the Glasgow Branch of the Forth & Clyde Canal. It sends off four branches - one about a mile in length to Calder Ironworks, near Airdrie in New Monkland Ph.[Parish]; one, about a mile in length to Gartsherrie Ironworks; one about 1/4 mile in length to Dundyvan Ironworks; & one also about 1/4 mile in length to Langloan Ironworks, all in New Monkland." Gazeteer of Scotland.
This canal is not navigable to vessels with masts owing to the bridges not being raised, as on the Forth & Clyde. There are four splendid locks at Blackhill by which a rise of 96 feet has been got over. At Netherhouse in Old Monkland there is a swinging bridge - the only moveable one on this canal.
