A former surgeon will be signing his new book in Waterstones on Saturday.

Douglas Harper, who worked at Falkirk Royal for 23 years, has published River, Railway, Ravine about the work of his grandfather Louis Harper, the bridge engineer who designed the Dorrator Bridge, built in 1893.

He’ll be in the Falkrik Waterstones in High Street store from 2-3.30pm.
