Saline and District Heritage Society

Formed 26.04.11

Local history and heritage group. Meets monthly in the winter. Annual membership is only £5.

Our Museum

It is now open for the summer season and the theme this year is 'Archaeology'. It is open every Sunday 10 -12, Tuesday 6pm - 8pm and Wednesday 10am - 12 noon. Entrance is free and our volunteers love chatting to locals and visitors alike.

On Sunday 17th September we will be taking part in Open Doors Fife. Both the museum and the church will be open from 11am - 2pm as well as tours of the graveyard and possibly the enclosed settlement. 

Latest News
We have been busy promoting two Core Paths in the area; both start from the car park at Steelend - one goes via Bandrum and Brightside cafe and the second one follows the route past the Temple and the Golf course. Please note that part of the second walk follows a short stretch of the main road to Cowstrandsburn. West Fife Woodland very kindly mowed the path and cleared away any encroaching bushes as well as installing two beautiful benches - the views from there are spectacular. Thanks to the Community Development Trust for providing the funding to make this possible. Due to a delay in printing, the two walking leaflets showing points of historical interest will not be available until October and these will be made available in the middle shop, Shieldbank and Brightside cafe. Meanwhile, follow the core path signs.

The graveyard has been given a summer tidy up and the wildflowers are looking lovely. If it would just stop raining, it would be a nice place to sit.


Winter Speaker Events

A bit early for this as they don't start until September
but Barry has been busy putting together an interesting list of speakers - to be announced soon.

Admission for these events is members £1 and non-members £2.

We have plenty to look forward to and plenty of work to do, so if anyone would like to volunteer their services for any of our projects or would like to find out more, please let Linda Moyes know (852 817)
