It is located on the Forth River at the eastern terminus of the Forth and Clyde canal. The town is an important oil and container port, with oil refineries and large chemical works. Mostly they import timber, wood pulp, rubber, and large quantities of scrap metal used for the production of steel. The lights and fires of the refineries are spectacular at night, and it inspired Bertrand Tavernier to make his dour 1979 sci-fi film Death Watch in Scotland.
Grangemouth was founded by Sir Lawrence Dundas in 1769 and was built in conjunction with the eastern end of the Forth and Clyde Canal. The town has several Christian churches: three Church of Scotland, two Catholic Churches, one Episcopal Church and several mission-type churches.The town also has many football teams, including Mahratta AFC and Bowhouse F.C., and is home to Grangemouth Stags Rugby Football Club.
