Our History

This group was formed from interested members of the village who had noticed a great deal of history connected with the ancient and very substantial old parish of Kirkmichael. Each individual member had a story to tell or a map or photograph to share and it was agreed to have a meeting of the village residents, past and present, in order to glean further insights of past times in Kirkmichael.

Of particular interest was a DVD which had been converted from 8mm cine camera footage of Coronation and Silver Jubilee sports days in the village. This film show prompted a request by several locals for a copy of this DVD which since been produced.

Another point of interest was the award of VC [Victoria Cross] to not one but TWO soldiers from the village. All these pointers will help to put Kirkmichael on the map and hopefully encourage visitors and enthusiasts to our village.
