The Community Shop
We have a cosy community run shop with a cafe renowned for its home baking. The shop stocks local produce wherever possible, including meat, free range eggs, fresh fruit and vegetables and plants in season as well as a small range of local artworks.
The Local Church
There is a historic church with a splendid Arts and Crafts stained glass window by Christopher Whitworth Whall. In the kirkyard are many fascinating old gravestones, some of them older than the church itself. They include a memorial to a murdered covenanter believed to have been carved by ‘Old Mortality’ himself.
Many of the cottages in the village are more than 200 years old, in a variety of old Scots architectural styles, while a brand new eco friendly primary school is under construction, to serve a new generation of village children.
The Dyrock Burn
The Dyrock Burn flows prettily through the middle of the village and there is a large playing field which is suitable for family picnics.
