The Levenbank Print Works may no longer exist, but can be located with the help of the footbridge. This is still known as the Stuckie Bridge and was built as a rail bridge as seen in the map below.


The Levenbank Print Works on the Jamestown side of the river was roughly where Honeysuckle Lane is now. The Carrochan Burn still runs now the north side and somehow crossed the lade. That lade came off the Leven, through the works and then back again. It has since disappeared. The railway bridge though remains, albeit as a footbridge, The Stuckie Bridge. The bridge is in fact one of a pair. The next one traverses the large lade of the Levenfield Works downstream from here. 

The Stuckie Bridge. The works was on the opposite side.

This is the pair of the Stuckie Bridge where it crosses the lade to the west of the leven of the unrelated Levenfield Works.

The path across what are now a pair of footbridges originates here on the east side of the Leven. All that remains of the station is some stone walling including this embankment. The works was on the lower level where there is now housing.

The Carrochan Burn meets the Leven at this point. The heavier modern embankment to the left is part of the barrage works. Both sides have been filled in and levelled for modern housing.
