Cycling the Scotland-England border, followed by some readings from The Book!
We are delighted to be one of the two beneficiaries of the royalties from this fascinating book about the Scotland-England border.

From 1833 to 1920 Leith was an independent burgh. It’s not possible to follow the old boundary exactly. However, it is possible to follow it quite closely.
