Yetholm History Society has published several books - Water Mills on the Bowmont (2002) and Bygone Yetholm (2006). Both of these books are out-of-print, but more information on these and other publications can be found via the appropriate drop-down tabs.
This Autumn we will be publishing our third book Yetholm Past and Present: A Walking Guide. The book will be launched at this year's Border Shepherds' Show on Saturday 7th October and will cost £5. We look forward to seeing you at our stall at the show.
Book description (from the back cover): In the past, Town Yetholm was a self-sufficient community and Kirk Yetholm was famous as the home of Gypsy kings and queens. This booklet provides a guided tour and a map for each of the two villages. It gives brief histories of key buildings. In-depth sections describe Yetholm's history and traditions. A final section describes short walks to places of local historical interest.
The book has many illustrations by local artist Janet Canning. Shown below is her drawing of the sadly demolished Allan's Cottage, which once stood in front of the Mission Hall where YHS holds its meetings.
We are grateful to Northumberland National Park and Kelso's Charity Begins at Home for grants towards publication.
