2021 Programme - Fife West - 19th September

Charleston Workshop, Scottish Lime Centre
Charlestown Workshops, the former 1705 estate workshops for Broomhall, the seat of the Earl of Elgin. Charlestown Workshops were restored and converted in 2000 as the offices and training centre for the Scottish Lime Centre Trust – an internationally recognised Centre of Excellence for the conservation, repair & maintenance of traditional buildings. Come and see what we have achieved in nearly 25 years of operation

DOUGLAS BANK CEMETERY, DUNFERMLINE
The Commonwealth War Graves Commission looks after graves and memorials for 1.7 million men and women from both World Wars across the world. 21,000 of these are in Scotland. At Douglas Bank Cemetery there are 309 war graves, including casualties from several countries. Join a tour of these with CWGC staff and volunteers to learn more about our work, and some of the stories of the individuals we care for here.

DUNFERMLINE ~ FLAX HERITAGE WALK
Book your place for a tour of Dunfermline's linen and damask heritage which will include the town's oldest dwelling and the newest culture hub.

Dunfermline District Radio Car Club
Come and have some family fun at Fife's only purpose-built outdoor radio-controlled car track. We have exciting plans for DDRCC this year. Formed in the 1970s DDRCC numbers have doubled since the last Doors Open Day , we have Lottery funding to improve our facilities and are keen to show you what's on offer. Last year we had to conduct everything digitally. This year - you can join in the fun as we will have a few club cars on hand so you can give it a go! Racing will start on Sunday at 10am.

HOLY NAME CHURCH, OAKLEY
The present Holy Name Church was designed in the early 1950s, in the early Scottish style, by Charles W Gray. It was built by the Smith-Sligo family of Inzievar House and was opened in 1958. Particularly outstanding features are the stained glass windows, and statues carved by French designers from Chartres.

HOLY TRINITY, DUNFERMLINE
Fine Victorian church from 1891 by architect Rowand Anderson who also encased the attractive 1895 Hamilton two-manual pipe organ. Enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of this fine ecclesiastical building, and explore the features, including the fine reredos, and the lovely Kempe & Wilson windows.

INVERKEITHING ~ TEXTILE PROJECT
A fantastic Fife flax textile project is underway in Inverkeithing, with community participants creating a stitched record of the medieval town’s history. For Doors Open Day, there will be a small exhibition at the Civic Centre, a live stitching demonstration 2.30 – 3.30 pm and embroidery kits to be given away. Enjoy a virtual visit to Inverkeithing, the fantastic photography and expert editing skills of the West Fife Digi-Crew. On the FHBT website hear more about Inverkeithing’s stories on the podcasts and more!

INVERKEITHING, HISTORIC TOWN WALK
Book earlier for this fascinating tour of Inverkeithing's past. Hear stories of the town's historic buildings and people, and lots more. Refreshments will be served at the end of the walk in the Friary or the gardens if weather permits.

Saline & District Heritage Society Museum
The Heritage Society Museum is located in the Church Session House and will help you discover local curiosities above and below ground in and around the village.
