Welcome to Newburgh History Group

Newburgh History Group and Friends of the Laing are very sorry to learn that Gordon Pitkethly has passed away.  As Chairman of Newburgh History Society and a great enthusiast for Newburgh's unique history, Gordon did much through talks and guided tours of Newburgh, as well as his work with the Oddfellows and British Legion, to pass Newburgh's fascinating story on to future generations.  Thank you to Gordon from all his friends.  He will be much missed and long remembered.

Newburgh History Group exists to explore Newburgh's rich heritage.
