The Present Preserving the Past for the Future


Benarty Heritage Preservation Group

About BHPG

BHPG is a group of people from the Benarty area who all share a keen interest in the history of the area. We meet in Benarty Centre on Monday afternoons from 1:30 until 3:30 pm and you are most welcome to join us.

We have a wide range of materials available for viewing, for example, we have books covering a whole range of subjects such as Old Church Life in Ballingry, The History of Lochoreshire and No More Bings in Benarty.
We also have old newspapers such as the Fifeshire Advertiser, the Fife News and the Lochgelly Times some copies stretching back to the mid eighteen hundreds.

We have a fantastic collection of old photographs and slides some of which can be viewed on this site.

At present we are working on a few projects, we’re in the planning and research stage of our project to write a few booklets on the four villages. We’re working on a bigger project regarding Lochore Castle and some of our members are working with Fife Heritage Group but rest assured we’ll keep you up to date on all of them as they progress.

We have now added a new ‘Shop’ page where you’ll find booklets, brochures and our latest calendar together with details on how to purchase these.  

The chairman of the group is Michael Payne and the secretary is Mrs Marjory McIntosh. To contact us please use the “contact us” button above.

I hope you enjoy using this site and feedback is always welcome.
