On the trail of village history
Clovenfords has joined the Borders walking trails with a new leaflet tracing the history of the village.
Local residents Roddy Beatson and James Macfarlane have put together “Clovenfords Historical Trail”, an encyclopaedia of 19 attractions in the area, as part of a Clovenfords and District Community Council initiative involved working with P4/5 pupils from the local primary school during 2012-13.
The authors are grateful for the contributions of historical information and photographs from Tom Quayle and Joan Mundell, present-day photographs by Suzanne Hume and financial support from Scottish Borders Council’s Community Grant Scheme.
The history of the village in the leaflet, which includes a map, follows a route via the hotel and continues past the old staging house, village shop, the Vineries, the Luggie School, the new school, railway station, Green Road, church, the hall, and many other places in between.
