Auld Earlston on right track

Auld Earlston, the local heritage group is holding an open day and exhibition on Saturday February 27 in the Church Hall, High Street, Earlston from 10am-3pm.

The focus of the exhibition will be a preview of the group’s latest project ‘Remembering Earlston’s Railway (1863-1965)’.

Twenty photographs have been selected to be turned into display pictures which will shortly go on show at shops and other venues throughout the village.

The Community Group at Earlston Primary School has been involved interviewing grandparents and older residents to gather their memories of the railway, with the results also on show at the exhibition.

There is the chance to browse though more vintage photographs of the village, watch a rolling slide show and chat over tea and coffee with members of the Auld Earlston Group.

Do come along - all welcome. For further information telephone: 01896 848240 or e-mail

Auld Earlston is grateful for project funding from Scottish Borders Council Railway Celebration Fund and the Community Grant Scheme.

Entry is £2 including tea/coffee. Children free.
