Tour Scotland Video Of Old Photographs of Coldingham
Tour Scotland video of old photographs of Coldingham in the Scottish Borders, Scotland. This is a village and parish in Berwickshire. Before the Reformation a vaguely defined jurisdiction known as Coldinghamshire was linked to Coldingham Priory and extended along the east coast of Berwickshire, The priory continued in its religious purposes until 1560, when it was partially destroyed during the Scottish Reformation. However, a portion of it continued its religious activities until 1650, when it was fortified against Oliver Cromwell. After a siege of two days, the main tower in which the besieged defended themselves was so shattered by artillery that they were forced to capitulate. This great tower of the original priory finally collapsed about 1777. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.
