Walk to the forge

The Old School House at Swinton
The Old School House at Swinton

This week’s old photograph from our archives, above, shows a scene from the village of Swinton.

The picture, which was originally a picture postcard sent in to us by a Mrs Pringle from Hutton, shows the old schoolhouse beneath the village’s trees.

A Clydesdale mare and her foal are being led to the local forge in the foreground.

If you have an interesting old picture or memory of Berwickshire from times gone by, feel free to share them with us.
