River Garnock

Turn ye, turn ye hands of time
Like a clock about to chime
Running through a hundred towns
Claiming lives and rings and crowns

Giving life to work and mills
With your spout deep in the hills
Jacob´s Well I could not find
My elders left no trace, no sign

Then in rage you burst your banks
People curse you, none give thanks
Wounded like an open knife
Knox´s Mill you still give life

  1. The company my nephew works for may have came across ‘Jacobs Well’ whilst carrying out work in a bid to resolve the flooding at and around Kilbirnie Cross / Mill Road.
    I shall ask him to describe there findings once again and if there were photos taken.
