Carronshore  Stirlingshire


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Carronshore like this:

Carronshore, a village in Larbert and Bothkennar parishes, Stirlingshire, on the left bank of the river Carron, 1 mile ENE of Carron Iron-works, and 2 miles WNW of Grangemouth. Connected with Carron Ironworks by a double lined railway, it was formerly the port of the Carron Company; but has, in main degree, been superseded by Grangemonth. ...

Yet it is still used for the landing of ironstone and lime, and for drydock repairs; and is accessible, in ordinary tides, by vessels of 150 tons burden. It has a post office under Falkirk, a mission station of the Church of Scotland, and a public school, which, with accommodation for 252 children, had (1880) an average attendance of 207, and a grant of £195,13s. 6d. Pop. (1841) 838, (1861) 1035, (1871) 966, (1881) 481.
