Exhibition at Dunfermline Carnegie Library and Galleries

The Reading Room at the library is now displaying images of the former Valleyfield Estate and some of its celebrated figures until the end of February.

This is in recognition of the bicentenary of the death of Humphry Repton, the acclaimed English landscape gardener, whose only commission in Scotland was to improve the estate of Sir Robert Preston, the successful entrepreneur and one time ship’s captain for the East India Company who inherited the family seat of Valleyfield in 1800.

Opening times of the library can be found at https://www.onfife.com/venues/dunfermline-carnegie-library-galleries.

If on viewing the Valleyfield display, your appetite is wetted to learn more about Valleyfield and the Preston family, you may wish to attend one of the guided walks through Valleyfield Wood to hear about its history and to enjoy the spectacular displays of snowdrops at this time of year. Afterwards there are refreshments to enjoy at the adjacent Therapy Riding Centre.

The walks start this weekend and go on into March. Details can be found elsewhere on this site.

Exhibition made possible with funding from the Inner Forth Landscape Initiative.
