Beith Town House
This is Beith Town House. Part of the building is now a museum
run by volunteers. There are only two small rooms but they put on
exhibitions. The one that has just finished was an exhibition of
photographs of transport in the town. Part of the permanent collection
is the flag above. This is an old wood block print flag. There was, for
many years, a wood block print flag making business in Lochwinnoch.
In all probability it was made there. As for the age of the flag...I don't
know but it has to be a couple of hundred years old.
The Town House museum is open on Tuesdays and Saturday mornings.
