Person NameLinlithgow Union Canal Society; 1975-
ActivityThe Edinburgh & Glasgow Union Canal was constructed between 1818 and 1822. It ran from Edinburgh to Falkirk where it was joined by a series of locks to the Forth and Clyde Canal. Designed and built by Hugh Baird with advice from Thomas Telford, the canal is famous for having three magnificent aqueducts and Scotland’s only canal tunnel. The Linlithgow Union Canal Society, a voluntary body, was founded in 1975 to promote and encourage the restoration and use of the Union Canal, particularly in the vicinity of Linlithgow, West Lothian.
