We’ve been on our trips away again. We were based in Yorkshire for the most part but on the way down we went via Coldstream in the Borders, Berwickshire as was. It’s just over the River Tweed from England and is the “home” of the Coldstream Guards and also has ex-Prime Minister Alec Douglas-Home‘s ancestral pile of The Hirsel (not open to the public) nearby.
The photos were taken with our new camera with which I’ve not yet fully come to grips.
Coldstream isn’t very big, but big enough to have a War Memorial. Very Cenotaph-like. Great War top plaque, Second World War below.
Up a side street there was a deconsecrated church which has at some time been converted to a Bar & Function Room. Perhaps it was in the 1930s for the entrance is deco!
