The Water Yett. A lane leading from the Cross to the Loch. The present "Water Yett" is several hundred metres to the west, leading from the High Street to the Loch. The transfer of the name raised hackles amongst some Linlithgow natives.

St. Michael's church now has an aluminium crown topping the tower. The crown was designed by Sir Basil Spence, the famous Scottish architect.

The core of the structure is laminated wood. The aluminium cladding was originally anodised in a gold pigment but this has weathered, leaving the crown silver.
