Comment On Bonnybridge

My town is called Bonnybridge because a long time ago an army came through our town and the leader of the army took a drink of our water and he said 'what bonny water' so we got bonny but we added a bridge over the water so that's how we got our name Bonnybridge.

MADDISTON: the name seems to derive from MAUDSTON, (but I don't believe we will ever find out who MAUD was), the accent was not always on the MADD part of the name but on the centre IS which makes more sense in spoken Scots (MaudISton) . The village was made up out of smaller constituent parts, which have joined up over the years.
