Greater Liberton Heritage Project

Welcome to the page of the Greater Liberton Heritage Project. We are a voluntary team, established in 2002 to support and encourage research and public interest into the unique heritage and cultural identity of the area of Greater Liberton.  As well as collating and disseminating the history of the area, the project encourages the conservation of sites important to the cultural heritage of the area. 

We have as our home Inch House Community Centre, 225 Gilmerton Road, Edinburgh and our meetings are held each week on Mondays between 10.00 and 12.00.

We have an extensive library of books, pictures and stories on the estates, historic houses and lives of people who have lived and worked in the area. We have access to the census returns and birth, death and marriage records of Liberton Kirk. Our genealogist has compiled the family trees of the Little and Gilmour families of Inch and Craigmillar, as well as the Wauchope family of Edmonston.

As well as being able to share our information within the community, we are always looking to add to our collections and welcome any donations of pictures and stories relating to the people, and places. Please feel free to contact us at any time.
We run exhibitions and group visits to Inch House and our volunteers are available to conduct guided tours of this famous House. We also participate in Doors Open Day in conjuction with  the Cockburn Association.
Please email us if your Group would like to visit.
