In 1887, John Bartholomew's Gazetteer of the British Isles described Uphall like this:
Uphall, par. and vil. with ry. sta., Linlithgowshire - par. (containing the town of Broxburn), 4541 ac., pop. 4812; vil., on Brox Burn, 1½ mile W. of Broxburn and 1 mile N. of its sta., which is 5¾ miles NE. of Bathgate and 13½ SW. of Edinburgh, pop. (including Upper Uphall) 591; P.O., T.O.; has large paraffin works.
A Vision of Britain through Time includes a large library of local statistics for administrative units. For the best overall sense of how the area containing Uphall has changed, please see our redistricted information for the modern district of West Lothian. More detailed statistical data are available under Units and statistics, which includes both administrative units covering Uphall and units named after it.
