Carsphairn Community Website
The Heritage Centre has a new Exhibition every year to reflect a different aspect of life in Carsphairn. These are being archived by our volunteers and will be viewable below.
Remains and standing buildings are part of every community but in Carsphairn parish old buildings have been largely undisturbed by the hand of man and natural decay and neglect has caused their ruination.
These many reminders of a previous population stand besides current buildings, some adapted from their previous purpose but all providing part of the rich heritage in an isolated parish which once boasted a far greater population than now.
Old post offices, pubs, churches, isolated shepherds cottages, big houses, miners’ rows and other buildings (even though they might be remains or even a memory) have all played a part in the fabric of our community life.
Their adaptation to our current way of life takes us through the social changes that have occurred in this community over the centuries. The rate of change has accelerated over the last fifty years but we are privileged here to have glimpses of the past in the buildings as well as written knowledge about them and their occupants.
