Synopsis

Nestled in the rolling Border hills, at the meeting of the River Teviot and Slitrig Water, Hawick is deserving of its title as 'Queen o' a' the Borders'. Founded as a settlement in Norman times, it has survived English invasions, the lawlessness of the Border Reivers and the advent of the Industrial Revolution. This rich and vibrant heritage, which stretches back centuries, is reflected in the distinctive architecture of many of the town's buildings. Hawick has undergone remarkable changes in the past few decades - from the demise of traditional local trades to the closure of the Waverley Route railway line. Today, it is known across the world for its award winning Cashmere produce, its annual Common Riding and as a hotbed of rugby talent. Alastair Redpath takes you on a journey of the 'auld grey toon', highlighting events, people and industries that have shaped it over time.

Alastair Redpath has a keen interest in the history of the Border towns and runs a local history group called 'Project Hawick'. This project manages a digital archive and encourages members of the public to donate photographs and documents, in a similar vein to the BBC's Domesday Project of 1984/2011. Alastair frequently writes up articles on local history and has created a number of websites for Hawick. Alastair is originally from Hawick but currently lives in Glasgow.
