Old Coldstream and Cornhill by John Griffiths take us on a journey through a land fought over for many hundreds of years changing hands between the English, Scots and Norsemen. The book includes many interesting images from around the early 1900s, including Coldstream Market Place (the original home of the Coldstream Guards), the 2nd Battalion of the Coldstream Guards presenting their former colours to the Provost Carmichael in 1921, and many other images from the villages of Lennel, Milne Graden, Leitholm, Eccles, Birgham, Cornhill, Donaldson’s Lodge, Norham, Duddo, Etal, Ford, Crookham, Branxton and Flodden Hill the site of a bloody battle between the English and Scottish forces. In general the book is a visual and historical guide through an area that is defined by its position on the River Tweed (which was a vital trade route for the towns on its banks), and its position on the border between Scotland and England gives it its unique borderers identity and culture.
