More Information:


Water Row is the oldest road in Govan perhaps going as far back as the earliest church at Govan in the 5th century. The road leads down to the River Clyde from Govan Road where it was once fordable across to Pointhouse. When the river was deepened the ford was replaced by a ferry. It is possible Roman soldiers marched down Water Row to cross the river on their way to the Roman fort at Yorkhill.
