The site at Parkside Primary in Jedburgh is being cleared to make way for a car park for a multi-million pound campus being built nearby. The school closed its doors in July with pupils transferred to Howdenburn Primary and Jedburgh Grammar. Those two sites are expected to shut next year with children moving to the new Jedburgh Grammar Campus.

Ferniehirst is the ancestral home of a branch of Clan Kerr and was our sole reason for visiting this area of Scotland. Although there had been some interior mishap a few days before our arrival and tours canceled, we went anyway to see the exterior What an incredible experience! Authentic and we enjoyed learning about the family history. The grounds were gorgeous!

Detailed information on our online catalogue of Scotland's heritage. Jedburgh had been an important religious site for years when the Augustinians arrived in No buildings survive from this earlier period, but many artefacts and archaeological finds give an insight into life before the abbey. The visitor centre displays some exceptional carved stone fragments such as crosses and a sarcophagus.
Office of Strategic Services , the Free French Bureau Central de Renseignements et d'Action "Central Bureau of Intelligence and Operations" and the Dutch and Belgian Armies were dropped by parachute into occupied France , the Netherlands and Belgium to conduct sabotage and guerrilla warfare , and to lead the local resistance forces in actions against the Germans. The name of the operation was chosen at random from a Ministry of Defence code book, although several of those who took part in the operation later reflected that the name was apt as the town of Jedburgh in the Scottish Borders was notorious in the late Middle Ages for the activities of the raiders known as the Border Reivers. By this period in the war, SOE had insufficient resources to mount the huge operation on its own; for example, it had access to only 23 Handley Page Halifax aircraft for dropping agents and stores, barely sufficient to maintain SOE's existing networks. The OSS eagerly sought to be involved, since in a single swoop it got more agents into northwestern Europe than it had during the entire previous period of the United States' involvement in the war. Nevertheless, General Eisenhower , the American Supreme Commander , ensured that the French would lead the operation and gave them command on 9 June of the Jedburgh teams in France.
