TALES OF OLD TORRY

6 JUNE – FRIDAY

Torry began life as a tiny medieval fishing hamlet at the Dee estuary from as early as the 12th century and had their own provosts and grew into a Victorian town which latterly became a suburb of Aberdeen in 1891, much to many Torryites' displeasure. The original village is all but gone, and this tour attempts to redress the balance by recalling the stories of 'Old' Torry including:

 

THE WRECK OF THE OSCAR

THE DIVERTING OF THE DEE

DEEFERRY DISASTER

MENZIES OF PITFODELS - LAIRDS OF TORRY

THE BALNAGASK MOTTE

ST. FITTICK'S KIRK

TORRY'S VICTORIAN STREETS

SCHOOLING FROM ABBEY ROAD TO VICTORIA ROAD

CHURCHES

TORRY LIBRARY

THE VICTORIA BRIDGE

Start time:   7.30pm

Start point:  Junction of Baxter St/ Sinclair Rd. (Old Torry Bar)

End point:   Victoria Bridge

Duration:     2.25 hrs
