Victorian library

Angus Council is moving forward plans to re-create a Victorian library at Inglis Memorial Hall in Edzell, turning it into a unique visitor attraction and making it a key destination in the county’s tourism trail.

Neighbourhood Services committee agreed to consider proposals at their meeting on Thursday, October 4. The historic Inglis Memorial Library building, recently upgraded by Historic Scotland to a Category A listed building, could be restored to its original 1898 layout. Neighbourhood Services committee agreed at their meeting to progress plans for the project. The library consists of a collection of 6,000 volumes, gifted to the village by Lieutenant-Colonel R.W. Inglis at the end of the 19th century; it is considered to be the best preserved example of a Victorian public library in the U.K.
