East Church meets a wider public

05 March 2009

Helen Bradley of Archaeology Scotland talks to BBC AlbaThe East Church has been getting a good public airing over the last few weeks with appearances on BBC Alba, at the Cromarty History Society, on the Rural Gateway website and at a kirkyard conservation gathering.

The public noticeboard at the church has certainly been proving effective, as the sighting by a BBC worker of the notice about the kirkyard conservation workshop led to BBC Alba coming along to make a newspiece for the channel.

Helen Bradley of Archaeology Scotland talks to the kirkyard conservation groupHelen Bradley of Archaeology Scotland led the kirkyard conservation workshop, giving useful information and encouraging lively discussion amongst the participants from Cromarty and Resolis . All of those that came along are keen to get involved in finding out more about the kirkyard and thinking about how best to manage it.


East Church slides and interpretive boards at the Cromarty History SocietyDavid and Caroline gave a talk to the Cromarty History Society and enjoyed the questions about progress and finds at the church. The interpretation panels got their first airing too - as always with these things you see some things that you'd like to tweek once they are on display - but on the whole they look pretty good!

The panels will be on show at the Cromarty Courthouse during the summer - so if you are in Cromarty make sure you pop in and take a look. The Courthouse is undergoing major exhibiton changes at the moment, and they are opening free this year -well worth a visit.
