Researching and recording the history of the Cardenden villages
Welcome to our Website
What we do
We research and record the history of the Cardenden villages, as well as maintain an extensive archive of documentation, photographs and maps. We can also assist with some of your genealogy work if you have relatives from the villages
We regularly have talks and presentations by partnership organisations (such as the WEA) and individuals - see our Events & Talks - as well as visiting interesting historical places in Central Scotland
We also periodically publish books and pamphlets
We have two current large scale projects underway:
- establishment of Cardenden villages (especially the old Auchterderran Parish Kirk) on the currently being designed and developed Fife Pilgrims Way
- working with Auchterderran-Kinglassie Kirk on several aspects of their Heritage Lottery Project - especially the authoring and publishing of a supporting information booklet and a timeline of photographs of their current structural improvements of the kirk building and Kinninmonth Mausoleum - the book has been published and was almost immediately sold out - going to be reprinted for Summer 2018.
We are about to revamp our we presence with new facebook site and twitter feed ( @LocalC_denHist ) - look out for us soon!!!!
