Kelso will celebrate the 900th anniversary of the founding of its abbey this year with a walk around the Borders Abbeys Way, led by council rangers later this month.

The 68-mile walking week is part of the Lottery-funded Kelso Townscape Heritage Initiative (THI) which includes Discover Kelso, a three-year programme of educational events running until next year.
