Object of the Month
Lady Godiva, 1940's
This light fire pump was found wrecked and abandoned in Ballinluig in Perthshire. Two Biggar fire officers, George Shiels and John Paterson, rescued it and restored it. The government ordered thousands of these for Auxiliary Fire Service, set up just after the Second World War started. They were made by Coventry Climax Engines Limited. The light trailer pump used by Biggar firefighters in the 1940's would have been similar to this. It was pulled by a car.

Biggar Stories
Biggar and the House of Fleming
The dramatic story the House of Fleming in Biggar begins in the 14th century. It features murder and execution, loyalty and tragedy. The new narrative of the House of Fleming introduces many less well-known but highly significant figures.

Visit the museum to hear about their trials and escapades as they become inextricably caught up in the saga of Mary, Queen of Scots.

Look out for the reconstructed model of the Fleming family home in Biggar, Boghall Castle.
