Lennel Church Remains
  • Lennel parish church was built in the 12th century and was in ruins by 1705. It was about 50 foot long lengthways and 26 foot wide. It was moved to coldstream in the mid 19th century.
  • To get to Lennel church was a real effort, getting up hills and trudging through nettles.
  • Here are the pictures we got.
norham castle
Norham Castle
  • Norham castle was built in 1121 to guard a ford over the Tweed by RanulphFlambard bishop of Durham

a church s remains
A church’s remains
  • We stopped at the side of the river and went looking for the remains of an un named church as it was to old to know, we had to pass through a few fields to get to the church and when we got there all that was there was the grave yard in a field of nettles so we just took some photos and wrote about it
paxton house
Paxton house
  • Paxton house is situated at the banks of the river Tweed.
  • It was built by the Adam Brothers in 1758 it is one of the greatest examples of 18th century architecture.
  • Paxton House was also our restroom stop which was well needed for Alex

  • We were unable to reach the settlement as it was on the side of a cliff.
  • But here is a video which filmed by Zoe as Alex had next to no sleep. Which made him hyper?
royal border bridge
Royal border Bridge
  • Berwick castle was in ruins and all the bricks that they found were used to make the royal border bridge next to it.
  • We couldn't reach the ruins as the tide was way too low.
