Carron Works, Falkirk
This cast-iron gateway was made by the Grahamston Iron Foundry for the Edinburgh International Exhibition in 1886. Following the exhibition, it stood at the entrance to the Grahamston foundry until 2001 at which time it underwent extensive renovation before being moved to its present location on the banks of the River Carron at the site of the famous Carron Iron Works. The present occupiers, Carron Phoenix, kindly gave permission for it to be erected at the entrance to their factory. It is believed to be the world’s largest cast iron gateway (information by John Reid). l
