JULY 2020

 

Covid-19

Because of the lifting of restictions on "Super Saturday", July 4, we are more or less out of lockdown, but still subject to social distancing regulations. We hope that restrictions have not been lifted too early as the virus is still with us and producing local spikes. Well done to all the NHS staff and others who have coped so well in very difficult circumstances.

Leet Water  From Source to Tweed, Paperback, Lulu Publishing 2012, £8.50

Foreword by Major-General Sir John Swinton, KCVO, OBE.

The Leet Water is a small and unassuming tributary of the mighty River Tweed in the Scottish Borders. Because of this, it is often overlooked but it will reward those who are prepared to go looking for its charms. It flows in unexpected directions through a variety of landscapes during its short journey and there are many surprises on the way and much to discover in terms of topography, geology, pre-history, history and wildlife. The author includes many photographs as well as historic and up-to-date maps. Net proceeds of sale go to community groups in Whitsome, Swinton and Coldstream. 

Breamish and Till: From Source to Tweed, paperback, 276 pages, TillVAS, 2014, £10.00

This illustrated book looks at the various sections of the two river valleys (the upper part of the R. Till is called the R. Breamish) between the source of the River Breamish in the Cheviot Hills and the junction between the River Till and the River Tweed at Tillmouth in north Northumberland. The author has been on a subjective journey looking at archaeology, flora and fauna, history, geology and things that just appealed to him on an 'as and when' basis as he came across them. Many maps and photographs. Net proceeds of sale go to the Till Valley Archaeological Society (TillVAS).
