Linlithgow Cross – The focal point of Linlithgow, West Lothian, Scotland, is the Cross, overlooked by the magnificent Town House, 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.

The Cross Well in front, itself a replica of a 1628 original, was created in 1807 by Robert Gray, a one-handed stonemason.

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.
