Jedburgh Town Trail

About This Route

Jedburgh is one of the region’s most southerly towns and lies just 9 1/2 miles from the Anglo-Scots border on the A68. The oldest written form of the town’s name is Gedwearde, meaning the enclosed settlement by the river. Being close to the National border with England resulted in the town being captured on many occasions. Although Jedburgh did not benefit financially from the boom in the textile mill industry she survived a decline in her industries and is a popular tourist destination today. There are plaques on the buildings that are highlighted in the trail. This will give you an opportunity to explore streets that you might not have thought to visit.
