Tullibody History Group
Researching and recording the village’s history is like a captivating detective story, particularly as many of our older residents have passed away. Nonetheless, the group persevered with determination and managed to preserve their stories.
The History Group has been collecting a vast amount of archive and photographic material for several years, which is now displayed at the Tullibody Heritage Centre.

The History Group was formed in 2001 and we opened our Heritage Centre in 2003.
Since then the History Group have achieved much in its years.
Tullibody War Memorial
Despite the fact that the War Memorial cannot be restored to its original state when it was constructed in 1923, the Council has been able to improve the area by using funds from the Civic Pride Pot to clear the vegetation and make other enhancements.
This has enabled the Community Council to secure a grant for laying commemorative stones in honour of the soldiers from Tullibody who lost their lives.
Tullibody Auld Kirk
The Tullibody History Group contacted Historic Scotland and Clackmannanshire Council regarding the condition of the Auld Kirk.
Afterward, they completed phases one and two, and everyone will surely be pleased to see the finished result.
It is hoped that stage three will follow soon.
The Lady's Well
In 2004, the Tullibody By-Pass road construction plans were announced, and the Tullibody History Group took the initiative to locate The Lady’s Well. With the aid of water diviner Mike Cranfield from Dollar, we successfully located the well.
Then, Susan Mills and the Group excavated the well.
Marshalls and the Council provided their support in creating a path down to the well, which is now accessible.
