Yetholm Past and Present - A Walking Guide is a concise guide to the buildings and history of Yetholm. Written by members of Yetholm History Society, the book is structured around three guided walks in and around the area. Every historically significant building or feature is discussed, giving information about the people who lived there, or who played a prominent part in the building's history. 52 pages long, the booklet is easy to follow and profusely illustrated by pen and wash drawings, by local artist Janet Canning, of many of the buildings (some now, sadly, gone) and scenes of the two villages. For anyone who is visiting the area this is the perfect companion that will bring depth to your visit - and it may well provide some surprising information to those who think they know everything already!
Priced at only £5, Yetholm Past and Present - A Walking Guide is available at both the Village Shop and Valley Meats in Town Yetholm. You can also order a copy by getting in touch with us via the Contact page of this website.
