Old Insch

Author : Ann Dean
ISBN : 9781840335989
Cover : paperback
Price : £9.00

Although Insch has a long history of settlement, its growth has been a stop and start affair. It was granted a charter as a burgh of barony in 1677 but lost its burgh status in 19th century reforms. In its time it has had a distillery, a water-powered Husk Mill, two small hotels and a secondary school and was the smallest place on the Aberdeen to Inverness line to retain its station, which has since been restored and includes a tourist information centre and museum. Located near several prehistoric monuments including the remains of a 4000 year-old stone circle and a Pictish memorial stone, Insch has a timeless quality about it. This is an attractive collection of photographs of the village, its crafts and and its inhabitants over the last century.
