Anstruther Model Solar System sees the light of day.

Observant folk will have noticed the series of bronzed plates that have appeared along Shore Street and elsewhere. These are the main components of the Anstruther Model Solar System, a true scale model of the Solar System. The Sun is at the Tourist Information Office (ie the old Sun Tavern) and the rest of the planets are spread out as far as Pluto, which is on a stone wall some 600 metres away on Dreelside. True scale means that the Sun, planets and the distances between them are all to the same scale.

Supporting leaflets are now being distributed and are available from the Tourist Information Office. The next major development in this project is to be an information display board on the Folly.
