Knightsridge (Scots: Knichtsrig) is an area within Livingston, Scotland to the north of the town. Not long after the start of the construction of Craigshill and Howden began, the construction of Knightsridge started in 1968 and finished in 1980. Most of the first residents were placed in Knightsridge, Craigshill, Howden and Ladywell. The heart of Knightsridge is the local community centre and primary school.

In recent years Knightsridge has flourished thanks to community groups working together.

Street names[edit]

The streets are named after surnames with the suffix Way i.e. Davidson Way, Barclay Way, Gordon Way, Robertson Way.

Facilities[edit]

The Mosswood Community Centre provides facilities such as dance classes and brownies/cubs/beavers. It also hosts many community groups, such as the Ladies of Livingston. Many adult education classes are held here.
