Marjoribanks Street, named after Alexander Marjoribanks of Balbardie, who became Bathgate's first Provost after the 1824 Act. As normal, the quality in Bathgate moved uphill for better views and absence of smoke. The higher, the better; some excellent Victorian villas of all shapes and sizes. Wellpark, c.1860, the home of the Wolfes (owners of a well-known shovel factory), coursed stone with swelling two-storey semicircular bay in ashlar. Fine plasterwork within.
