The Nineyards


Sir, - I was taking a look the other day at the demolition of old houses going on in Nineyards Street. It occurred to me that it would be interesting to know the history of these houses, or of the Nineyards on which they are bullt. Are they the "Cots" which gave the name to the town? According to Chamber's Gazeteer, published in 1831, “Saltcoats, one hundred and seventy years ago, contained only four huts for making salt." Perhaps some of your correspondents or readers have light which they can give.

The Mineral Well

The Saltcoats Mineral Well has been even more largely patronised this week than on the opening week. On Monday last over 300 persons tasted its health-giving waters, and from the opening date up till last night the number who have patronised it is about 2500. As showing the possibilities of the well in the way of attracting visitors to the town, it may be mentioned that, at least, one lady has taken the house she occupied for a fortnight longer than she intended, owing to the physical benefits derived by her from the water. The well-house and its surroundings are now in first class order, and everything points to the Spa being a permanent success.
