Tour Scotland Video Of Old Photographs Of Avonbridge

Tour Scotland wee video of old photographs of Avonbridge village in the Falkirk area of Scotland. The village lies at the junction of the B8028 and B825 roads and is a bridging point over the River Avon, hence the name Avonbridge. During the nineteenth and twentieth centuries Avonbridge was home to small scale open cast coal mining. The village also had a brickworks in the mid twentieth century, Avonbridge Brickworks, which no longer exists. The name Avonbridge derives from the fact that the village crosses a river. The word, avon, is often found in the Celtic language which denotes the presence of a river, in this case the River Avon. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.
