A residential and industrial district of Falkirk, which developed in the later 19th century around a railway station on the Stirlingshire Midland Junction Railway, Grahamston lies a quarter-mile (0.5 km) northwest of the town centre. The modern station is on the line between Edinburgh and Stirling, and now one of two which serves Falkirk. The Scottish Railway Preservation Society's occupied premises just to the east of the station before the collection was moved to Bo'ness in 1987. The Forth & Clyde Canal represents the western boundary of the district. Brockville Park, a stadium which was home to Falkirk Football Club, was located here from 1885 until it was deemed unsuitable for a Premier League club and sold in 2003. It was replaced by a supermarket, but a turnstile from the former ground remains as a memorial, together with windows illustrating the history of the club.
