A HIGH STREET HERITAGE WALKABOUT
WITH AN ARCHITECTURAL THEME
Sunday 26th June at 2.00pm
Starts from St. Mary's Canvas Works
(opposite the Harbour and entrance to Carr's Flour Mill)
The idea for the 50 Objects website arose from casual conversations among some local history enthusiasts in the Cupcake Coffee Box in the town's historic High Street. A project was required to mark the 2024 Golden Anniversary of the founding of Kirkcaldy Civic Society.
The intention was to provide information about 50 distinct objects (or places, or people) in the town, The narratives you will find in the website seek to shed light on past events and place Kirkcaldy's present in the context of its past.
A new object is added to the site every month. The 50 objects countdown to the 2024 celebrations of the society.
Another of Kirkcaldy Civic Society's series of virtual heritage walkabouts...this one of the High Street......
if you want to skip the first bit which is about Kirkcaldy's mediaeval past...then start at about 15 minutes.
