Avenues to the Past: Stirling’s Historic Streets

As Stirling celebrates 20 years of city status, Stirling City Heritage Trust invites you to discover the stories of Stirling’s historic streets and how Conservation Area designation helps to protect the city’s unique historic environment.

For almost 150 years people have joined forces protect historic buildings, parks and trees. Ranging from tiny community organisations to the National Trusts, these trusts and societies were formed in response to the threat of loss of treasured buildings and landscapes which people saw as important to the fabric of their communities.

This new exhibition celebrates the work of grass roots organisations that acted to protect Stirling’s historic townscape and explores the stories of the wide leafy avenues, narrow urban streets, and winding lanes that make up Stirling’s Conservation Areas today.

Avenues to the Past: Stirling’s Historic Streets runs from 12th September to the 2nd October at Made in Stirling 44 King Street, Stirling, FK8 1AY. 10am - 5pm Monday to Saturday and 11am - 5pm Sunday.

The exhibition is funded by Historic Environment Scotland and was produced with assistance and archival material from Stirling Archives and The Stirling Smith Art Gallery and Museum.
