Programme

2021

In normal circumstances, meetings start at 7.30p.m. in Falkirk Trinity Church.   ALL WELCOME.

However, due to the current Covid-19 situation, it is unknown when Falkirk Local History Society will be able to meet in Falkirk Trinity Church as previously. 

This situation is altering and members are being notified by email.

Summer Walks

In the summer months, during June, July and August, usually there are at least three guided historical walks around local areas of interest.   Everyone is welcome and there is no charge. The proposed 2021 programme is given below.

Due to Covid restrictions we would ask members intending to attend a walk to email our Secretary (flhs.secretary@yahoo.co.uk) in advance with their names and contact details.  This will enable us to keep an eye on the numbers and to provide information for Track & Trace should it be necessary.  None of the walks will take us inside buildings.

There are still over 12 public buildings in the town centre designed by the local architect
JG Callander in the 1920s and 1930s. This short walk will examine the style and composition
of these buildings in their setting.

The Chapel Burn. 
Streams through our urban centres are barely noticed these days and are often hidden
from sight in culverts.  The Chapel Burn flows from near the new hospital at Larbert
to the Shore near Carronshore.  We will be walking the lower reaches from the River Carron
to the railway near to the former site of Barbara Davidson’s Pottery.
