Community Council supported proposal to produce a 'History of Kingsbarns'
back to Kingsbarns Community Council

Kingsbarns History Project - Meeting - Monday 14 November, 7.00pm in Village Hall - all welcome

Come to this open group meeting if you would like to become involved in, or know more about, this community council supported 'History of Kingsbarns' project - the form of which is yet to be decided.

According to co-ordinater Ian Smith:

"It is proposed that a history of Kingsbarns be compiled, covering the key developments in the village and the surrounding farms and estates. The main perspective would be to look at the social history of the village, with particular features on the school and kirk (and on the golf course), although there would also be coverage of the changing patterns of employment in the area. It is intended to utilise material from villagers past and present to enliven the end product with the inclusion of anecdotes and 'stories' and similar use will be made of photographs and manuscripts etc. The resultant publication should help to further increase knowledge about, and the reputation of, the village, while also having educational value by involving the current school pupils."
