The Saugh Tree

The Saugh Tree was the point for the people of Broxburn and Uphall to meet, chat and turnaround when out walking.


The West Lothian Courier reported, on 5 September 1947, that “fire has all but destroyed the old 'Saugh' tree - one of the place's landmarks".  They reported on 7 October 1949 that what remained was to be cut down.

In the early 1990's, a willow tree was planted at Goschen Place, with the West Lothian Courier reporting that “a new Saugh Tree has been planted in Broxburn to replace the old one, burnt down nearly fifty years ago.  The children who accidentally set it alight were at the ceremony of replanting".
