Colinton Local History Society
Our next meeting takes place on Monday, 19th February, at 8pm in Dreghorn Loan Hall. We will be hearing from two of our members about the research they have done on topics of local interest. Andrew Paterson will reveal the person behind the name on one of Colinton's benches, while Alex Stewart will look at the history of Colinton Cottage Homes.
Colinton Local History Society was founded more than thirty years ago to record the history of the ancient Parish of Colinton. Since then, our members have carried out various research projects covering gravestone inscriptions, census records and old photographs. We are currently busy digitising our extensive archive and working on an oral history of the parish.
We hold meetings twice a month between October and March, and invite guest speakers to talk to us on a variety of historical subjects covering both local and Scottish history.
Our meetings are held on the first and third Mondays of the month (Oct-Mar) in Dreghorn Loan Hall, Colinton EH13 0DE. New members are extremely welcome, as are visitors (there is a small entry charge for non-members).
