Salt Production in St Monance and the Return of the White Gold

Dunfermline Historical Society

Thursday 18th Jan 2024

The remains of the salt pans and their attendant windmill at St Monance are to most of us well known landmarks of historic interest but they inspired Darren Peattie to renew salt production in the village after a gap of 250 years. In his talk he will tell the story of this ancient industry and it’s modern rebirth.

We welcome all to our first meeting of the new year at the Abbey Church Halls at 7:30 pm as usual.
