Now a quaint small village on the edge of the Forth, Charlestown in Fife was once home to one of the largest lime-producing facilties in Scotland, the Charlestown Limekilns. Although now long-closed, the Limekilns have undergone conservation work as part of an IFLI project and form an important part of the industrial heritage of the Inner Forth.
This guided walk around Charlestown - a planned village designed in the 1750s to house workers for the kilns - will let you explore the fascinating past of the village.
The meeting point for the walk will be outside the Scottish Lime Centre Trust: see map below.
