  1. to the bottom right of this map appears to be Burnside Cottages where I lived as a boy from 1958 until they were utterly destroyed by flooding of the Park Burn ten years later. I recall more than one cottage (at least three) occupied in the late 50s but by the time they were flooded only ours, which was the biggest was left. I remember the water rose so quickly that we just had time to grab some papers and photos before it went from lapping the doorstep to shoulder height. The fire brigade came but had nowhere to pump the water to as the land there was the lowest lying around the area. I’d love to know the origin of the cottages if these are known ? I later emigrated to New Zealand where I still am now
