Cardenden  Fife


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Cardenden like this:

Cardenden, a glen and a village, with a station, in Auchterderran parish, SW Fife. The glen extends N and S; is about 1 mile long, wide, unwooded, and fertile; has rich substrata of coal; and is crossed, at the N end, by the Thornton and Dunfermline branch of the North British railway. The village with the station is there, ¾ mile S by E of Auchterderran village, and 5¾ miles WSW of Thornton Junction.
