THE LENNOX HERITAGE
The Lennox Heritage Society is a local community group that has been meeting for many years. The main aim of the group is to study and celebrate the rich culture, heritage and history of West Dunbartonshire and beyond.
We meet on a monthly basis from September to April and host talks and presentations by invited speakers. Meetings take place in the Concord Centre in central Dumbarton (next to the Denny Civic Theatre) and start at 7.30 pm. Tea, coffee and biscuits are available from about 7 pm at the cost of 40p per person.
New members are always welcome but if you prefer not to become a member, individual sessions may be attended at the cost of £2 per talk.

2019/ 2020 Programme of Talks
Several of our members research, record and collate the history and heritage of our area. Occasional outings and walks are arranged. We are currently focussing on topics such as the Antonine Wall, where it passes through West Dunbartonshire and recording the Starfish decoy system in the hills above Dumbarton and the Vale of Leven.
On 11th April 2015, the Lennox Heritage Society took part in an event in Gartmore Village Hall entitled "Service, Spirit and Sacrifice". The event was organised and hosted by the Loch Lomond and Trossachs Community Partnership and was held to mark the centenary of World War 1. The Lennox Heritage Society contributed a poster display on the thoughts and experiences of some of the men who left to go to war, in particular the men of Dunbartonshire and surrounding areas.
