Museum sleeps? Thursday March 12th

The next NTS Angus Members' Centre afternoon talk, on Thursday 12th March at 2:30pm, is entitled "Museum sleeps? Or, what happens when we’re closed to visitors". It will be given by Dr Alix Powers-Jones, Property Manager at Hugh Miller’s Birthplace Cottage & Museum.

Hugh Miller was born in 1802, in a thatched fisherman's cottage built by his great grandfather in Cromarty. At the age of 17, after leaving home, he became apprenticed to a stonemason, although in his spare time he studied literature and natural history, developing a keen interest in geology and fossils. He later became an accountant and then editor of a newspaper associated with the church. As well as being the editor of the "Witness", Miller was one of it's principal contributors and was also involved in the divisions in the Church of Scotland, which led to the establishment of the Free Kirk. His writings were not all religious though, he also published poems, stories from Cromarty and his childhood, political papers and multiple books on geology and palaeontology. Although self educated, Hugh was recognised as influential in these scientific fields. From fossils he had discovered, he proposed theories that shed a new light on the prevailing ideas of creation and the age of the earth. Along with some of his manuscripts and other artefacts, many of these fossils are on display in the Museum, a fine Georgian house built by Miller's father. This sits next door to the original cottage, which has now been restored to the way it might have been when Hugh lived there.

Dr Powers-Jones will tell us more about this interesting property and what happens behind the scenes, especially when they are closed, so come along to the Guide Hall, Myre Car Park, Forfar at 2:30pm on the Thursday 12th to learn more. The talk is open to everyone and non members would be very welcome The admission charge of £4 includes light refreshments after the meeting. This is one of a number of events run by the Angus Members' Centre. For further information contact the Membership Secretary on 01674 676783 or email [email protected].

Our other traditional corn mill at Preston (just outside of Edinburgh) suffered from an alarming flood over the weekend...please help us conserve these rare living examples of our social, technical & culinary history.

This was Preston Mill over the weekend...

Heavy rain caused the flood which has now thankfully receded and left the wheel undamaged.

We've broken out the mops but still have a way to go with the clean up and checking for any other damage. This is an unexpected cost so we've reopened our crowdfunding donation page and are asking for your help.

Can you help us mop up the Mill? https://buff.ly/2MYia3J

Plant Sale at House of Dun, Sunday 15th September 2019

The Angus Members' Centre of the National Trust for Scotland is holding its Autumn Plant Sale at the House of Dun, by Montrose, on Sunday 15th September, from 1:30pm to 3:30pm.

There will be the usual wide variety of plants on sale - trees, shrubs, herbaceous, perennials, fruit bushes, etc. The majority are grown locally by the Members' Centre Gardeners or donated by members. Some plants are fairly common, but some are more unusual - all the plants will be good value and our regular customers know to come early for the best selection. As well as plants there will be some jams and other produce. The Members’ Centre Gardeners will also be on hand to help with purchases and offer advice. Why not come along and see what we have to offer. The House, cafe and shop will be open and the gardens and grounds are well worth a visit, so bring the family and make an afternoon of it.

Any donations of plants or produce would be gratefully received. If you have a bumper crop of apples or plums and don't know what to do with them, or any plants that are surplus to your needs they could be just what somebody else wants, so please bring them along or contact Charles on 01307 463860, Joyce on 01674 676783 or email [email protected].

For further information on this or other events organised by the Members' Centre, please contact the Membership Secretary on 01674 676783 or email [email protected].
