From Nags to Queens, There are Signs for Everything

Where would we be without signs?  They help us in everyday life, but they can also be rather fun!

Melrose is famous for its Abbey, so it comes as no surprise that they named
a street after it.
Most Border towns have their town crest on all
street names, as can be seen above on the right hand side.

This is the sign from the butchers in Lauder.

I find this sign fairly stands out.  Its on the main roadway
through Lauder.

I found this whilst out walking at 
Sorrowlessfield near Earlston.
This is a place I regularly walk, but have
never seen this before, or can find it since.
I'm sure there must be a story to this name, but as yet I've been
unable to come across anything.  This is in Jedburgh,
and some believe it may have been the name of an
Inn, of which there were apparently many in
Jedburgh in years gone by.

As can be seen in the picture, this hotel in Kelso, was
established in 1725, making it one of the
Scottish Borders oldest hotels.
