Birse Community Trust (Deeside)

In their corner of Aberdeenshire, nestled on Deeside, the Birse Community Trust are active in championing local history and heritage.

The trust is active in a number of restoration projects, including the Bucket Mill, and Souters shop and Birse Kirk. Their work opens up fascinating and little-known buildings to the community and encourages a glimpse back in time.

They are working with partners on archaeological survey and historical research and have established the Birse Parish Archive at Finzean Old School. This now safeguards many old photographs, documents, other local history records and a collection of interesting local artefacts.

In their role they are keeping traditions alive, but importantly making sure they are safeguarded for many years to come.
