This is a rare photo of Burnheads farm , hence Burnshead Rd in the town.The burn came down from Wardley and ran along the south side of Ellison Hall on its way to the river Don. In the 1860s, maybe early 70s the Ellison family created their 4 lakes by simply creating embankments in the shape they wanted and the burn filled them up to form 4 lakes.
