What is a Hidden Heritage Volunteer?
Take part in a research and design project to create a Hidden Heritage Trail at Kinneil Estate. Volunteers will investigate and uncover the rich history of the estate, often missed by visitors, and turn those stories into interpretation that everyone can enjoy. The Hidden Heritage project is run by the Friends of Kinneil and Falkirk Community Trust, and will also contribute to the celebration of the area through the Great Place scheme.
