A beer bottle found in the River Irvine below the Laigh Milton Viaduct during conservation works (1995-96). The raised lettering on the bottle indicates:
TURNER & EWING
It is believed the bottle may have been thrown into the river by a workman building (or maintaining) the railway or by a passenger on one of the many trains taking people on outings from Kilmarnock to Troon. The viaduct was closed to traffic in 1846. The bottle in all probability will date between 1810 and 1846.
