My First Watch-House

Oxnam – Borders 

Before going as far as Jedburgh, turn right up into the hills surrounding this famous town. Travel along the winding road until a small turning on your left leads you to the isolated site. 
Peeking out over the top of the churchyard wall, this little watch-house is a real gem. Situated in a corner plot, looking out over all the ‘inhabitants’, the watch would have seen a bodysnatcher coming for miles around. 
An added bonus is the pair of jougs on the church wall.
