A former village which now forms an eastern industrial district of Bo'ness, Bridgeness lies a mile (1.5 km) east of that town. It is here that the Antonine Wall ends and a fine Roman sculpted tablet was discovered on 16th April 1868. While the original is held by the Museum of Scotland, a replica of the Bridgeness Slab was erected in Kinningars Park in 2012. Roman camps have been found immediately to the south and to the east at Carriden.
