Lade Archaeological Walking Tour - Perth's Hidden History

18 September 2021 (11am-2pm)

19 September 2021 (11am-2pm)

Perth & Kinross

Take a walk back in time following the medieval burgh defences and industries along the course of the lade downstream from the Lower City Mills. Now largely underground, the route of these lades follows that of the mediaeval city walls.

Local archaeologist, David Bowler, who has researched the area, will showcase some of his findings and paint a picture of how the lade and its surroundings came to shape some of Perth’s streetscapes.

Places on the walking tours at 11am and 2pm must be booked in advance.
