|3529||unknown||General notes.||At this time it is not clear who owned the lower water race on the left bank of Bannockburn Creek, or exactly when it was in use or for how long. The pipe /bridge is situated about 200m upstream and opposite of Wet Gully. It appears to have carried the race in 9 inch (225mm) diameter riveted steel pipes across the creek to the right bank, then back to the left bank. The reason for the bridge may have been to avoid an unstable or worked out area on the left bank. The remaining downstream section spans a sluiced area and is supported by large poplar trees which have grown around the pipe.|
