Tour Scotland Video Of Old Photographs Of Redding



Tour Scotland wee video of old photographs of Redding village in the Falkirk area of Scotland. Tour Scotland wee video of old photographs of Redding village in the Falkirk area. The village is 2.1 miles south east of Falkirk, 1.9 miles south south west of Grangemouth and 1 mile west of Polmont. On a hill beyond Redding is a stone that is called Wallace's stone, marking out the spot from which Sir William Wallace, after his quarrel with Sir John Stuart, one of the Scottish chiefs, is said to have viewed the Battle of Falkirk, from which he had been compelled to retire, and to have witnessed the defeat of the Scottish army. In 1923, the small mining community of Redding was the scene of one of the worst disasters in the history of the Scottish coalfield, which claimed the lives of 40 men. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.
