Day 28 - Jedburgh Castle Jail.jpg

And finally for the day... Jedburgh Castle Jail. A very neat and orderly castle that is in fact a jail or should I say was a jail. Built on the original site of the castle the jail was deemed to be cutting edge when it was built in the early 19th century. It didn't last long as human rights began to expand and was only active for about 80 years. Yet again, worth a visit even if it is just to remind how prisoners should/could be kept.

Now it is time to go back and prep my kit ready for tomorrow hike to Byrness and with it the crossing of the Scottish/English border.
