Our Stories is a collaborative project capturing and interpreting the rich, varied heritage of the Falkirk area. This site showcases the contributions of a wide variety of local professionals, volunteers and community groups who are working with the Great Place team to develop a public archive of local memories, images and written work.
Use this interactive web portal to explore stories about Falkirk’s Roman heritage, historic battles, the greatest local industries, football, folklore, wildlife and many other topics, in the form of written articles, photo galleries, animation, sound recordings, videos and art works.
Great Place is a partnership scheme between Falkirk Council, Falkirk Community Trust, Scottish Canals and Green Action Trust, supported by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Great Place seeks to highlight and celebrate the rich heritage that makes Falkirk a great area to live, work and visit.
