Gatehouse-Folk website

Locals will be aware of a project by Graham and Margaret Wright to collect old school photographs and to annotate them with names. These have recently been added to a new history website: which has been developed to make this sort of information publicly available.

The website also has a major database of all soldiers, sailors and nurses from this area who took part in the First World War. There are links to a sister website which contains photographs and transcriptions of gravestones at Girthon & Anwoth graveyards. A start has been made on displaying a range of old Gatehouse and district postcards. This is an ongoing project and the website will be added to on a regular basis.
