Views into the past and present at Polmont Woods
The Antonine Wall, which passed through part of Polmont Woods, is a World Heritage Site. This project aims to make it easier for people walking in the woods to get clear views of the Wall and appreciate its significance as an important part of Falkirk's heritage. In 2014 trees were felled and paths were cleared to allow clearer access to the wall, and the views from it. The location was choosen as it gave strategically vital views north across the Forth.
The project also aims to improve access to a pond at the edge of the woodland and create an informal outdoor classroom where children can come to learn more about the area's special historical and natural heritage. This part of the project will take place in 2017.
