FORTHCOMING EVENTS      


We have two evening meetings in February 2020. On Monday, 3rd February, our visiting speaker is Allan Kilpatrick of Historic Environment Scotland. Allan's talk is entitled Defending Edinburgh.

A fortnight later, on Monday, 17th February, in a change to our original programme, Alastair Learmont will speak on To Make and Save Money: Scots, Sugar and Slavery in 18th Century Jamaica

Both meetings are at 8pm in Dreghorn Loan Hall.

Existing members, new members and guests are all welcome.

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).
