Falkirk Local History Society

About this Organisation

Falkirk Local History Society was formed in 1981 to provide a forum for people with an interest in the history of the Falkirk area, which used to be called East Stirlingshire. These days we are fortunate enough to also cover the historic town of Bo’ness and surrounding villages formerly in West Lothian but since 1975 part of Falkirk District. The Society now has about 200 members.

The Society is involved in a wide range of activities including regular meetings, guided walks in the Falkirk area, field trips, research and publication, talks to interested groups and heritage related campaigns.

The meetings are held on the third Wednesday of each month from September to May in Falkirk Trinity Church in the town centre. Visitors are very welcome. There is no charge. The meetings usually involve an illustrated talk using slides on a historical topic, local or national, by speakers from within the Society or outside specialists. They start at 7.30pm and finish at around 9.00 to 9.30pm. These meetings are very well attended, attracting an average of 80 each evening.
