NT5377 : Athelstaneford

near to Athelstaneford, East Lothian, Great Britain

Pretty village and home of the Saltire, supposedly derived from a white cross of clouds against a blue sky during the battle of Athelstaneford in 832. The Anglo-Saxon name of the village does not hint that the Northumbrians lost, and control of the South east of Scotland passed to the Scots and Picts. It was not that long since The Angle's language supplanted Welsh as the local language, their place names remain too with Tranent and Pencraig as examples.
