A small town by the Bonny Water and close to the most complete surviving Roman fort along the Antonine Wall.
Bonnybridge is a small town which lies north of the Forth and Clyde Canal near Falkirk. It is situated by Bonny Water, a tributary of the River Carron which runs through the town and lies north of the Forth and Clyde Canal.
A settlement may have existed near the river crossing for several centuries. By the 1780s it is evident that a population large enough to warrant a school was living there and in the immediate vicinity. The current town was originally developed in the 19th century in association with a new papermill, sawmill and iron foundaries.
To the south east of Bonnybridge is a well preserved section of the Antonine Wall, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the remnants of Rough Castle Fort, the most complete of the surviving Roman forts of the wall.
