Documenting Britain

The Brief Charms of the B7088

My Documenting Britain project is The Brief Charms of the B7088. The B7088 is a short road across the Tweed, scarcely mentioned in maps or on official documents, little more than a bridge and a pair of roundabouts. It is the tally line across an ancient, arterial, long inhabited landscape.

Field Trip

In August the Peebles Show arrived on the flat ground opposite Horsburgh Ford on the North coast of our territory.

Here, in the febrile, pre-referendum atmosphere the independent of mind were in the minority.

Among scenes of unlikely enthusiasm for the European Union there was dark talk of subsidy and its absence.

Meanwhile the show rolled once more on its well established orbit, showing no inclination towards change.
