THIS week's Down Memory Lane pictures have been contributed by former Crosshill man Derek Smith who now stays in the Birmingham area but who still has strong connections in the Benarty area.

Said Derek: "These are shots which feature the Meedies in two of them.

"One of the them is a winter picture which I reckon was taken in the 1980s and shows Benarty Hill in the background.

"Then is a picture of a dog enjoying a run on the edge of the loch in what looks like an early spring day, again from the 80s.

"The other pictures show a couple of bus drivers and crew members and the back road to Kelty."

If you have any old photos you would like to see in our Down Memory Lane feature send them to or take them to the Times Office, 17 Bank Street, Lochgelly, on a Monday or a Friday noon to 3pm.
