Welcome to Ancrum &  District Heritage Society
a small village with a big history

This website has been put together by ADHS  over a period of time, some parts are from external sources, and some from our own journey. We do not generally enter a link to these external sites as they are all widely available online. As with all history different theories will always be explored by various organisations and individuals. 

Looking back, on all that has been done so far since ADHS was formed. Especially with Mantle Walls, the Hogback Stone and Ancrum Old Bridge. Along with  all the other projects the society are working on, we can see just how far we’ve come since the initial work to protect the Mantle Walls. None of this would have been possible without public support, donations and memberships. If you can, why not sign up to become a member to ADHS or make a small donation to support this research? Like everything else, community archaeology and research has suffered from the inability to fundraise or secure funding throughout the last couple of years. Any support is welcome, the comments and support shared on both our own page and other history- interest pages have definitely inspired the group that the work done so far is worth it. 

Ancrum & District Heritage Society is always open to new members so please don't hesitate to get in touch with our Treasurer via treasurer@adhs.co.uk for membership details.   Thank you

Information on the exciting community projects you can be a part of can be found here

As a community group, Ancrum & District Heritage Society have set out three main projects that we think require further research, conservation and promotion. These include:
