Springfield


Fife

A village in the Howe of Fife, situated to the north of the River Eden 3 miles (5 km) southwest of Cupar.

Said to take its name from the numerous springs that fed into a small lake that once existed at nearby Stratheden, Springfield originally grew up around a corn mill on the River Eden. The village developed after the arrival of the railway in 1847 and became a prosperous industrial centre at various times producing bricks, tiles and textiles. To the north lies Stratheden Hospital (1850).
