Given evolving public health considerations, the Fairfield Heritage team have had to take the difficult decision to postpone public access to the Fairfield Heritage visitor centre for the first part of this year, we will review this at the end of July 2021 and hope to be open soon after.


The Fairfield Co-ordinator will be working with local schools to provide special workshops and associated learning resources that complement the Curriculum for Excellence.

Unfortunately due to the uncertainty around the coronavirus and in consultation with our team of volunteers, we have decided to close Fairfield Heritage until further notice. We have also postponed our walking tour and evening talk on 25th March. Please keep check back for updates!
