Rosyth remembers

This year marks the centenary of the occupation of the first houses in Rosyth's Garden City, built in the early 20th Century. It is also 100 years on from the Battle of Jutland, a World War I naval battle closely linked to Rosyth which saw over 6,000 men lose their lives. 

To honour this important year in the town's history, Rosyth Garden City Association are hosting a week-long exhibition in celebration and commemoration of Rosyth's centenary year.

The four local primary schools have worked with Scotland's Urban Past to research and remember the changes seen within Rosyth over the last century. The records produced by the pupils will be displayed as part of the Celebrating Rosyth's Centenary. Read more about remembering Rosyth.

The exhibition is open to the public and free to attend.
