Old Photograph St Margaret's School Polmont Scotland

Old photograph of St Margaret's School, Polmont located near Falkirk, Scotland. Polmont is located North of the Union Canal, which runs adjacent to the village. Old Polmont, situated on a raised beach overlooking the Firth of Forth and the Ochils, was an important fort on the Roman Antonine Wall. This fort, embankment and water source has been marked out and can be visited in Polmont Woods, close to the M9 motorway. During World War II, the now demolished St Margaret's School for girls was used by the Polish forces as a signals training school and soldiers from various Polish units were assigned to learn the trade of signalling.
