The Leyden Monument
The Leyden Monument
This 1861 monument designed by Hector H Orrock and sculpted by Handyside Ritchie, takes the form of a Gothic stone spire set on red granite columns, and stands in the middle of the village green. It was erected by public subscription to the memory of John Leyden, a poet and oriental scholar who was born in Denholm in 1775. Restoration and repair of the monument was carried out in 1982.
