PEOPLE will have the chance to discover more of the Wee County's industrial heritage in the coming weeks following popular online talks.

Historian Susan Mills is once again teaming up with Clackmannanshire Third Sector Interface (CTSi) to continue taking people through the development of industries which shaped the area's landscape and development.

In what is becoming a series of talks connected to the in-the-making Clackmannanshire Tapestries, the former council heritage officer is to host a further two online events.

They are following on from successful recent talks on the Hillfoots weaving industries.

Her first talk will cover the Forth Shipbuilding and Engineering Company as well as works manager Alexander Nicoll Black on Thursday, November 26, starting at 6pm.

The second will be a celebration of Alloa Pottery on Thursday, December 3, again starting at 6pm.

Meanwhile, a team of Wee County voluntary stitchers are working on tapestries highlighting the social and economic history of Clackmannanshire through the development of its industries.

These include wool, coal, pottery, brewing and distilling, weaving and ship building.

Anthea Coulter, manager at CTSi, said: “We want people to learn more about these important industries and feel engaged in the heritage of the area which will be the focus of the five new panels being stitched currently.

“This will be the biggest tapestry display outside of the new visitor centre in Galashields and we hope will be a huge draw for tourists and something that local residents will take enormous pride in when completed and on show.”

The effort is supported by The National Lottery Heritage Fund Scotland.

The talks by Susan Mills, also a member of Clackmannanshire Heritage Trust, are set to provide a further backdrop to the art project.

At the same time, the Alloa Pottery talk also ties in with the exhibition currently on display at the Speirs Centre which features many of the items produced in the Wee County.

Those interested in the talks can visit to secure a free space for November 26 and for December 3.
