Location: Queen's Hall, Charlestown
Sue Walker, Project Officer with Inner Forth Futures, will give an illustrated talk about the Inner Forth Wanderings and Windings project, made possible through a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Working closely with local communities the Wandering & Windings project is creating a suite of nine waymarked walk and cycle routes of varying duration, some only 4 hrs and the longest route taking a week to complete on foot.
These walks and cycles will use existing paths and tracks to encourage local people and visitors to the area to explore the landscape and discover some of the many gems to be found around the Inner Forth. They include natural hotspots, historic buildings, riverside views, cultural landmarks or simply places to escape the bustle of urban life.
The Gellet Society was formed in October 1990 to allow residents of Charlestown and Limekilns, with an interest in local history and heritage, to meet on a monthly basis. The Society organises a speaker for each meeting and takes an active role in archiving information such as old photographs of the area and anything to do with the industrial heritage of the villages. The Society's focus is on the history and heritage of Charlestown, Limekilns and the district lying south and west of Dunfermline.
Meetings start at 19:10 every second Thursday of the month. Annual membership is £6/yr including tea or coffee. Visitors £3 per visit and all will be most welcome.
