Tour Scotland Video Old Photographs Of Newtown St Boswells
Tour Scotland video of old photographs of Newtown St Boswells in the Scottish Borders, Scotland. The village is in the historic county of Roxburghshire. It is an old settlement, well established by the 16th century. The town has been known at various times as Newtoune, Newtown of Eildon, Neuton and Newtown of Dryburgh. It lies split between the civil parishes of Melrose and St Boswells. It was at one time a centre for milling grain, with watermills on its streams. It became a regional centre of communication and an exporter of livestock after the opening of its railway station. This importance has declined since the closure of the station in 1969. Of interest to folks with ancestry, genealogy or Scottish Family Roots in Scotland who may wish to visit one day.
