23 September 2018

Berriedale Church is an historically important building in Caithness and was built in 1826 as a Parliamentary Church under the direction of Thomas Telford, Civil Engineer. It was one of 32 Parliamentary Churches commissioned and built and is one of the few that remains furnished and laid out as it was originally built. The church is now under the stewardship of the Berriedale Church and Cemetery Association and remains in use for special church services, commemorative and general events which are well attended by the local community. Fascinating archival material will be available and Eric Farquhar has kindly agreed to give his intriguing local talk, Four Love Poems for Nellie at 11.30am, 12.30pm, 2pm and 3pm

Old St Peter's Kirk is one of the most iconic buildings in Caithness. Its importance was recognised nationally when it became a Scheduled Ancient Monument and Category A Listed building. The area on which the church is built has been occupied since Viking times. There have been many additions to the church over the centuries until it was closed to worship in 1832. Although now roofless and in ruins it is still a hidden gem with a serene atmosphere of its own protecting secrets within its walls. Please note: the graveyard has very narrow gravel paths in some areas and access to the inner church is stepped down with no hand rails. Every assistance will be given but there may be access issues for those with impaired mobilty to enjoy the entire venue.

Wick Heritage Museum

The Wick Heritage Museum is located in the heart of Thomas Telfod designed Pultneytown. Situated in premises that were once home to a number of businesses and families in Bank Row, the somewhat rambling building is something of an Aladdin's Cave. As you enter the building a team of dedicated volunteer guides, each one with their own historical knowledge, await to explain the room upon room that display the many aspects of life during the heyday of herring fishing. While an obvious aim of the Heritage Museum is to collect, collate and display the many artefacts that tell the history of Wick, the ethos is one of welcome and sharing.
