Description: Through history this was one of the gathering places for Scottish armies heading south into England. Close to the Border with easy access from the North, East and West with flat land and a plentiful water supply, thousands of men could ‘camp’ in the area. The fame of the Selkirk souters (makers of shoes and boots) meant that the army could also be shod.
