The Tron Tree    

The Tron Tree was in the Trongate, see pictures above. The centre picture plainly shows the Tron Well - a pump, to the right of the Tron Tree. They stood round about where the present village shopping centre (Tron Court) is. The Tron tree marked the site of the village weighing machine. The Tron Tree was planted in 1801 to commemorate Sir Ralph Abercromby's departure from Tullibody for Egypt on what was to be his last campaign. There was also a mill around this place somewhere. Gate is old Scots for a street. The Trongate was also called 'The Square'. None of these buildings or the tree exist today. I'm told that a tree planted near the entrance to the present medical centre was planted as a replacement for the old Tron Tree, but I don't know if that's true or not. -
