The #NationalLibraryofScotland have this fantastic resource for pouring over old UK maps.

If you are interested in taking an historic peek at your street the NLS website has a wide selection of digitised, historic maps that you can access and compare with the current topography of your area.

See how your street or town has changed by using their Georeferenced overlay maps.

Our Centre mascots ‘Ethel fae Methil’ and ‘Daisy fae Denbeath’ have been social distancing and hope that everyone is keeping safe and well during this period of uncertainty. They are really looking forward to the day when our community can return through the doors of the Methil Heritage Centre, but we’re not there yet! So please keep following Scottish Government guidance and keep all of your friends and family safe.
In the meantime we will be posting some information, links and fun stuff that we hope will be of interest to our local and wider community.

Following last night’s Government statement, all ONFife venues are closed to staff, as well as the public, until further notice as we enter a phase of national lockdown. Please bear with us as we find new ways to continue vital operations.

In terms of cancelled or postponed events and shows, we want to reassure customers that we will be in touch as soon as we can to arrange refunds where required.

We also want our communities to know, at this unprecedented time, that we are here to help you via our digital channels, and we plan on sharing helpful, entertaining and engaging information in the coming days and weeks.

Please let us know what you would like to see and how we can help. Most importantly – we want you to know we are in this together and we are here for you.

Thank you for your continuing support.

After consultation with Fife Council, ONFife has taken the difficult but necessary decision to suspend until further notice all our services - Libraries, Theatres, Museums & Galleries, Archive & Collections Centre, Retail Outlets, MAC, Mobile Libraries and Cafes - effective from tomorrow (Thursday March 19).

We look forward to welcoming you back as soon as we are able to open our doors once again.

Sad times indeed!
A huge Thank you to Eric and all of his staff for the memories.
Wishing you all the best!

It is the end of an era. Sad news today Shorehead Cafe will close its doors on Friday.
Get your memory banks filled before then guys, I remember sitting in there with my mum when I was a wee lassie, I took my kids and it always brought back memories. Leven won’t be the same without it. Wishing all the best to everyone there in their new ventures. A huge thanks for the memories. #memorylane
