Newburgh North Fife March 2010

Reeds at Newburgh on the Tay. All along the estuary there are extensive reed beds which in the past was the normal roof covering for housing. At the turn of the 19th/20th centuries and throughout slate replaced thatch. Signs of previous thatch roofing is evident on most houses in the area. In the high street one house remains with a thatched roof and interestingly a flat is for sale in that dwelling. I might be posting details soon.

Mud exposed as The River Tay recedes at near low tide in Newburgh north fife. The difference between high and low at the present moon phase is 2.6 metres.

Looking across from Old Parkhill to Newburgh Cemetery and beyond to the single line rail track carrying passengers from Edinburgh via Ladybank to Perth.
