Border crossing at Bloody Bush

  • Description

    "The Old Toll Pillar is on the right. Maps show that the old gate posts and pillar are directly on the line of the Border with the modern English forestry fence now slightly further east. James Logan Mack in The Border Line (1926) described the arbitrary course of the Border northwards (on the eastern flanks of the Larriston Fells) as a modern stone wall, flanked by deep and narrow trenches about 8 feet distant on both sides. Little trace remains of these ditches today." Photo by Andrew Curtis, 2014.
