The Lanthorn in dedridge is named after the old scottish word for a lantern. The lanthorn took just over a year to construct and was openned on the 25th June 1977 by the secretary of state of scotland Mr Bruce Millan MP. The following year her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth honoured Livingston by paying an official visit to the Lanthorn and planted a tree to mark the occasion.
