Oral History Project

The Society together with Community Green Initiative engaged in an Oral History Project reflecting the way of life of workers in the local mills, bringing together local children who conducted the interviews with people who worked in the mills. The voice recordings, photographs, and video of the interviews were presented in an exhibition, on a website, and in a community calendar for 2010. Lottery Funding had been received to enable this to be done in a professional manner.

River Carron Weirs

In Central Scotland we have a much loved river called the Carron. Since early days it has served as a water supply, power source, nature resource, fish residence, suicide venue, invasion obstacle, swimming site, water transporter, sewage dump and shipping port.

It rises in the Denny Hills at Ordnance Survey Map Reference 64/623829, wends its way through valleys, and it, and its several tributaries, used to tumble over at least twenty two Weirs or Dams on its way to join the River Forth at Grangemouth. Many of these Weirs are long gone, though older hands may remember or know of some more, and if they do, we can add to the list.

During the Second World War there was a network of camps set up around the country and also in Canada to accommodate the large number of enemy prisoners.
