NT2143 : Cleared field, White Meldon

4 km from Eddleston, Scottish Borders, Great Britain

Cleared field, White Meldon.
Cleared field, White Meldon.
Some former moorland to the north of White Meldon has been reclaimed for agriculture. The land is boulderstrewn, and the stones have all been gathered together in cairns all over the field. This activity was common during wartime, when some very unlikely arable land was uncovered, productivity no doubt aided by the very hot summer of 1940.
