Around 8 -10 years ago there was a project where rangers from pollok park ran a few historical walks along the waulkmill burn. they made reference to the age of the bridge near the foot of the walk, hidden behind the ashoka, as being around 4-500years old? They also had details of the bleaching fields up towards the dams. Perhaps there are some notes or references still available. I can't remember the waedens names, but he was bases in Darnley primary school for a while taking the kids on field trips around the burn and pond.
