Save the Date!

The Dumfries Archival Mapping Project (DAMP) will be holding their 6th annual evening at the Catstrand, New Galloway in early November.

The Headline of the evening is ‘Maps with woods and trees’. There will be talks about Dumfries & Galloway’s most ancient woodlands; an introduction to place names that have woodland or tree relevance and superstition and the singles trees including the Carlingwalk Thorns, situated within the Galloway Glens area of Castle Douglas.

These evenings are very popular and we would advise booking early so as not to be disapointed!

Full ticket (incl. food and membership) – £23 pounds, Evening only – £15 pounds
