001.15 A village on the South Western skirts of the parish about 3 miles from Glasgow, containing a population of about 500 principally Pitt & Quarrymen employed in the neighborhood. The bridge from which the name is derived is a little larger than a culvert and might not be found in passing over it. There is a ? school in the village. At the east end there are a few superior villas or cottages.
This name from the Railway and Post Office authorities adopting the corruption Bishop Briggs from the original Bishop's Bridge, is so generally known that it is doubtful if the original - Bishop's Bridge would be recognised on the planes.
