The PLACE Project invites you to a FREE event that explores Galloway deserted farmsteads and the tales behind them.

An illustrated talk by Peter Norman.

This talk will describe remote deserted farm houses, ruined corn kilns, land with traces of historic cultivation, and abandoned livestock enclosures. Do you have any local knowledge that might help answer the questions of who farmed there, how did they live

You are invited to bring along stories, pictures, tales and artifacts to help close the gaps in history surrounding Kirkcowan Parish and reinvigorate the booklet ‘Out of This World and Into Kirkcowan’.

People without the knowledge of their past history, origin and culture is like a tree
