The ancient land around Torphichen, meaning sanctuary of St Feichen, was settled by the Knights Hospitaller of St John in c. 1160 when they built the Preceptory, the remains of which are attached to the Parish Kirk. Earlier people settled the prehistoric hill fort of Castlethorn, the remains of which can be found on the eastern side of the Preceptory. Village life today is centred round the village square where the life of this strong community focuses on the Kirk, Torphichen Inn and the shop and Post Office. Torphichen Primary School provides primary education followed by secondary education at the well-regarded Linlithgow Academy.
