The History of Ayton. A Berwickshire Village

Front cover only.jpg

In November 2018 the Society produced this book, made possible thanks to a generous donation from local resident Patricia Payne. Sadly Patricia died before publication but the society is very appreciative of her generosity. The book includes the contents of the society's previous publication which was the writings of T. Ramsay and others but a lot more information has been added by various Ayton Local History Society members.

These are the subjects covered in the book.

  • Overview of Ayton's History

  • Shops, businesses and services 1903 & 1935

  • Education from 1560 to 2018

  • Ayton and the Church

  • Sports activities

  • Papermaking

  • The Ex-service & Recreation Club

  • Ramsay Turner's Personal Recollections

  • Photographs from Ayton's past

The book is available to buy on eBay at £8.99 + £4.54 p&p. Email for postage costs overseas.

Additional Information

Since the publication of this booklet additional writings of Ramsay Turner have been obtained by the Society. Thanks to Helen Symon who provided "Life at Ayton Law" along with a covering letter written by Ramsay. Click here to read it.
