The town of Falkirk takes its name from the early church of 'Fawkirk', meaning 'Speckled Church'. From Roman occupation through to the Industrial Revolution, Falkirk's location in the Central Lowlands has meant it played a major role in much of Scotland's modern history. First settled in the seventh century, Falkirk has seen a wide variety of Scottish historical moments - from battles under William Wallace, to being the birthplace of 'Scotland's other national drink', Irn-Bru. Falkirk has played its part in both national and international history - carronade cannons produced at the Carron Ironworks gave British warships a healthy advantage during late eighteenth-century naval battles, and John Logie Baird gave the world's first demonstration of the television set in a small Falkirk cafe. This selection of photographs traces the changes in the town that was once the centre of Scotland's iron and steel industry to the modern town recently voted 'Scotland's most beautiful'.
