For the masters project I’ve chosen a place on the River Clyde called the Timber Ponds. These remnants of timber ponds, date back to the 18th Century timber shipbuilding. They remain as lines of vertical wooden posts sticking out of the mud, seen in the rectangular areas shown in the image taken in Google maps.

Initial thoughts:-

Robert MacFarlane’s word of the day in April last year was

Sjusamillabakka (Shetland) meaning between the sea and the shore, ie the shifting space between high and low tide, neither quite water nor land. Metaphorically therefore a threshold or border realm.
