Join us at Dunfermline Abbey Churchyard – 4th and 5th of December 2021

It is only two weeks until we start phase two of our Dunfermline Abbey Churchyard Project.

The project is in partnership with Dr Susan Buckham, Kirkyard Consulting and the Tombstones and Tales at Dunfermline Abbey community group.

For this new stage of the project, we want to reinstate the buried stones excavation area.

To do this, we will:

  • Continue to check existing recording information
  • Proceed to photograph the records for the New Churchyard
  • Start tidying up and backfilling the buried stones excavation area in the Old Churchyard.
  • Map the New Churchyard.

Join us on Saturday 4th December and Sunday 5th December from 10 am – 3.30 pm. It is free and open to everyone. All you have to do is register.

The Dunfermline Abbey project will run until April 2023. The third phase in a joint project between the community and Fife Council to conserve the Dunfermline Abbey Churchyards.
