The Clock Tower of the magnificent Town House in Linlithgow, West Lothian, Scotland, taken from the banks of the Union Canal, a little bit East from the Railway station.
Built in 1668-70 to replace the original tolbooth, demolished on the orders of Oliver Cromwell.
Altered over the years, it now accommodates the Burgh Halls (including the Council Chamber of the former Linlithgow Town Council) and the local Visitor Awareness Centre.
Incidently, Linlithgow is the town where I was born. I lived there until I married. When I was much younger, my friends and I would go to the “Dancing” in the Town House on a Saturday night.
