Low down on Logo

FRIENDSLOGOWe are delighted to share with you the logo for ‘New Cumnock Heritage‘ designed for us by Muse Design.

The key feature is the intersecting flowing lines which represent the meeting place of the River Nith and Afton Water which lies at the heart of the village of New Cumnock.

Indeed on closer inspection the initials ‘nc‘ are revealed in the symbol. Can you see them?

This confluence of the River Nith and Afton Water is very significant  in our history. For in this vicinity, long before 1650 when the parish of Cumnock was sub-divided into the two new parishes of Old Cumnock and New Cumnock, once stood Cumnock Castle, Cumnock Mill and Cumnock Maynes.  The confluence or meeting of these rivers may well reveal the origin of the place-name Cumnock, from Gaelic comunn achadh ‘meeting place’.
