Linlithgow Embankment Study – Drop-in Session 1

This is the first of two drop-in sessions during the Linlithgow Embankment Study works – come and see the Union Canal as you’ve (probably) never seen it before!

Join us at Linlithgow Union Canal Society‘s Mel Gray Centre and…

  • see the fish that call the Union Canal home being temporarily moved from the sections due to be drained
  • chat with our environment team about the wide variety of wildlife and habitats on the waterway
  • refuel with a cuppa in the Linlithgow Union Canal Society’s Mel Gray Centre

We hope to see you there!

You can keep up-to-date with everything we have planned by visiting the project hub.

Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology

Scottish Canals is inviting the public to explore the Union Canal’s history, engineering, and habitats – and take a rare look beneath the waterline of the 200-year-old canal – at this unique event during the Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology.

From World Heritage Sites to ancient monuments, listed buildings to historic battlefields, cultural traditions to our myths, tales and legends, the 2017 Year of History, Heritage and Archaeology, running from 1 January to 31 December will shine a spotlight on Scotland’s fascinating past, some of our greatest figures, attractions and icons, as well as our hidden gems.
