This site was inspired by an earlier one created by my younger son Neil which I believe was the first-ever web site
dedicated to Lochgelly.
Our two sites eventually merged and have proved a huge success
with an amazing response from all over the world.
We have also been listed
in the top ten in a search on "Lochgelly" on Google for more than ten years without any professional
or corporate assistance.
We are especially pleased to include the album
of the late Billy Richardson, a proud Lochgelly man who started collecting pictures of the town about two decades before anyone
All the contents of our
site, including all the photographs, may be copied for any reason whatsoever but a wee mention of lochgelly.net would be appreciated.
Many thanks for visiting our site and please come back
PS My older son Brian has started
a local railways site for enthusiasts. It can be found at
