This site is dedicated to information on Historical Curling Places.
Initially, this effort was started by David Smith, who trawled through many old archives, annuals and minute books to create a list of Scottish Curling places. This list was turned into a database and via that database into a map - see the Scottish Curling Places page which contains links to both the map and the underlying database. Please have a look at the page containing places we have been unable to find and see if there are any you can identify.
Latterly, this mapping exercise has expanded beyond Scotland, and a database & map for England was created. Subsequently a number of Welsh locations were uncovered, and recently a number of places in Ireland - see the English, Welsh and Irish Curling Places page.
Both of these activities are 'work in progress', and are continually being improved as more information comes to light.
