The website has"lost" an earlier article about the installation of our Interpretation Panel "Bridges Across Time" and visitor information and map shelter at the iconic Leaderfoot Viewpoint just off the A68, south of Earlston.
The guests saw The Duke of Roxburghe formally carry out the unveilling, representing the Fallago Environment Fund, and one of our key funders along with Scottish Borders Council. Convenor, David Parker, also addressed the guests including our local supporters Earlston and Melrose Community Councils as well as the Paths Groups from both locations. Melrose Paths were represented by their Chairman, David Langworth.
Earlston Paths have also developed and produced the supporting, free leaflet called "Bridges Across Time", the dispenser on site needs replenished about three times each week and it proving very popular with visitors.
At the moment we are progressing with two Nature Panels which will be placed on the walking routes either side of the Leader Water. We have worked with Borders Forest Trust and our Nature Detectives at Earlston Primary School on this part of the Leader Water Heritage project. And more still to come!
