Currie & District Local History Society

About this Organisation


(a) To encourage interest in local history; to further research and make such information more readily available; to compile records within the Society and to preserve them with objects of local interest so that they may be displayed.

(b) To protect and preserve those parts of our heritage which will be of historical interest to future generations.

(c ) To co-operate with other societies with similar interests.


The society was formed in 1970 and is run by members interested in the history of Currie, the adjacent areas and local history generally.

The Society meets in the Gibson Craig Memorial Hall (156 Lanark Road West, Currie, Midlothian EH14 5NY) on Monday evenings, fortnightly, from early October to Late March, providing lectures and slide-show talks by both external speakers and members.
