Smith and Welstood's massive factory as it was  in the early 20th century.

Ian Scott: Glory days of the iron men of Bonnybridge

When I was a child in Windsor Road in the 1950s our next door neighbour was a blacksmith at Smith and Wellstood’s famous foundry.

It was certainly one of Scotland’s best known and for nearly 150 years the firm gave work and life to the village. But unlike other local ironworks it had its origins far from home.
