Glimpse into the past on of­fer

Evening Telegraph (Late Extra Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

TAYSIDERS are be­ing in­vited to dis­cover some­thing new about the old ways when An­gus Her­itage Week gets un­der way to­mor­row.

This year’s event, which runs un­til Septem­ber 10, fea­tures sev­eral events high­light­ing the vast di­ver­sity of the county’s his­tory and tra­di­tions such as an ap­ple har­vest day.

Guided walks through the streets of Kir­riemuir and Glamis will take place through­out the week, pro­vid­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties to dis­cover the fas­ci­nat­ing sto­ries be­hind some of the his­toric build­ings that add so much charm to the towns and vil­lages of An­gus.

Other high­lights in­clude a spe­cial open­ing of the Wil­liam Lamb Stu­dio in Montrose on Satur­day, a her­itage tour of Hospi­tal­field House on Wed­nes­day and a talk by Dr Helen Pierce of the Univer­sity of Aberdeen at Hospi­tal­field on Thurs­day Septem­ber 7.

An­gus Coun­cil’s eco­nomic de­vel­op­ment spokesman Coun­cil­lor Ron Stur­rock said: “As we ap­proach the fi­nal months of Scot­land’s Year of His­tory, Her­itage and Ar­chae­ol­ogy, An­gus Her­itage Week will shine a light on so many of the dif­fer­ent as­pects of our county’s his­tory, both mod­ern and from the dis­tant past.”

More in­for­ma­tion about all the events hap­pen­ing dur­ing An­gus Her­itage Week 2017 is avail­able at vis­i­tan­­itage­week.

Copies of the pro­gramme can also be picked up from li­braries and tourist attractions across the north-east.
