Markinch Heritage Group is based in Markinch, Fife, Scotland and was founded in 2003. It aims to raise awareness of the ancient town's history and heritage.
Heritage has many aspects ranging from buildings to the natural environment, from folk memories to historical archives. Although we are interested in the past, our focus is very much upon making Markinch a better place for future generations. We aim to achieve this by raising awareness of the local history and by attracting visitors to the town.
Over the years we have organised a series of public events and activities on different aspects of the town's history. We hold regular talks and have produced a number of publications including walk leaflets.
Members of the committee have given talks to various organisations and have contributed to research bulletins.
The Group plays an active part in major projects that affect Markinch and Fife in general.
