Dalkeith History Society

Dalkeith History Society’s objectives are to encourage an interest in the history of Dalkeith, through talks, exhibitions etc., and to carry out research into Dalkeith’s past.

Dalkeith History Society meets at 7.30 pm on the second Monday of each month, from October till May, in the Dalkeith Baptist Church. Invited speakers talk on a range of local history topics, mostly about Dalkeith or the Midlothian area. Meetings are open to the general public, although donations are always welcome from non-members.

The Society has a membership of around 200 people, and is run by a small Committee. Our Committee members are all long-term Dalkeith residents with a wide knowledge of Dalkeith’s past. The Society is a Registered Scottish Charity, No. SC045434.
