A film being created in support of heritage in Longniddry is in its final stages of production. It has been commissioned by Salt of the Earth to hold a lasting record of the history of Longniddry through the memories of its current residents.
The film focuses on families from the area whose actions, work and legacy helped create Longniddry as it is today. The film is a record of living memory, that will offer many generations' insight into the development of Longniddry over the last century.
Highlights include the beginnings of the Women’s Rural Institute, Nancy Jupp as one of Longniddry’s most important figures in the history of golf, families who owned long-standing businesses in the area, and memories of the railway development.
It is hoped that the film will offer new insights into local history and trigger old memories for those residents with a longer tenure in the village.
