Summer Walks

In the summer months, during June, July and August, there will be at least three guided historical walks around local areas of interest.   Everyone is welcome and there is no charge. A new programme of summer walks will be given on this page when decided. In the meantime, the 2021 programme is given below.

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.
