Burntisland Heritage Trust
Protecting Our Heritage
Formation Of The Project
After many years of discussion, debate and false starts, a working group was formed in November 2014 to ensure the preservation of the remains of the Kirkton Church and Graveyard
Burntisland Heritage Trust, along with the support of Burntisland Community Council and Fife Council formed a working group to bring forward plans and to apply for funding to carry out work on the church ruins and to preserve the surrounding burial ground.
Finally,in November 2014 we were succesful in obtaining a grant from The Heritage Lottery Fund, covering a large proportion of the cost of the project.

Hopes For The Future
For this project to succeed it needs the support of the people of Burntisland. With this in mind, over the next few months the working group will be looking at ways in which the various groups within the town, and individuals, will be able to add to the support of the project. We have already been in touch with the churches in the area and hope for their whole hearted support. Burntisland Primary School is particularly keen to be involved, and see their pupils being involved over the proposed two years of the project.
It is hoped that we can interest many other organizations to add their support to this long needed conservation of an historic monument, important not just to Burntisland and Fife, but to Scotland.
