In executing the cuttings on this part of the line, both above and below this bridge, as well as in a cutting about a mile father along, a number of rounded pebbles and masses of whinstone of considerable size were found; strongly indicating that at some remote period this part of the valley has been a lake, whose waters have been gradually displaced by the accumulated deposits of the stream brought down from the hills and dales above.
