Miscellaneous Articles from the Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald
Miscellaneous Articles from the Ardrossan and Saltcoats Herald


As part of the Herald intimation project, other articles were discovered, I have listed them below.

If you would like a copy of any article, then please contact the helpful local historians at Ardrossan Local History Unit at: localhistory@north-ayrshire.gov.uk

This is not a list of every wedding etc that occurred in the Herald, just a list of some of the ones we came across.

Many thanks to Jean Boyce for noticing the articles which she thought would be of interest to people.
I will be adding this page to the Herald section on the site at: https://sites.rootsweb.com/~sctayr/herald.html.
