Linlithgow Mill Stories

During 2013-14, the P6 class of Linlithgow Bridge Primary School, former workers from Linlithgow's paper mills and volunteers came together to explore their local community. The project provided the opportunity for the class to use local maps, photographs, aerial imagery, family history records and newspaper archives.

Throughout the school year the pupils got to know and interview the former mill workers. They then created oral histories and collected images to bring the local history and the local environment alive. This fascinating material is now available to the wider community through West Lothian Local History Library and highlights from the oral histories which were recorded are being uploaded to Scran.
