Plans for the restoration of Linlithgow’s Rose Garden will take a step forward in the next few days as work is due to start on the creation of improved access to the sunken garden from the Burgh Halls end.

The design work was funded by the Town Management Group, organised by the Linlithgow Peace Garden charity and designed by Rankin Fraser. The access work is funded by the Town Centre Fund managed by West Lothian Council on behalf of the Scottish government.

Planning approval has been obtained and discussions have taken place with locals including the Friends of the Rose Garden and the Burgh Halls team. During the work there will be temporary interruption to access from the Rose Garden to the Burgh Halls Café area, as barriers will be in place to protect the trees and people from the work.

The work will be carried out by P1 solutions from their base in Champany holdings.
