Over 12km (7.5 miles) of new and upgraded paths have been
created in Helix South. The paths through Helix South provide vital
connections between Grangemouth, Beancross, Polmont, Lower Braes,
Laurieston and Westquarter. They also improve links to the Falkirk
Stadium and link to Helix Park, The Kelpies
Hub and Helix North.
The paths are building strong links between local communities
and improving connections between Falkirk and Grangemouth.
Our paths have been designed so they work for as many different
individuals as possible, from keen walkers and cyclists to families
with buggies and those with mobility difficulties. LED lighting has
been installed on all of the key paths.
The Romans were here!
The Antonine Wall - the frontier of the Roman Empire in Scotland
- cuts through the Helix South area. The Antonine Wall was
constructed around 142 AD to mark the north west frontier of the
Roman Empire in Britain, and stood as a monument to Roman power and
To get to the Antonine Wall section in Helix South, take the
Mumrills Road and walk past Mumrills Fort, the largest known fort
on the Antonine Wall.
Enjoy walking, running and cycling on the new pathways around
Falkirk, Grangemouth and central Scotland. Lighting, signage and
good surfaces are already making these routes a big hit with local
people. A number of groups are using the paths on a regular basis,
including Step Forth's Nordic Walking Group.
