To find the Esk Parishes follow the instructions below: MAP
Arthuret From the south;
Take the M6 to junction 44, cross the roundabout and head north on the A7 towards
Hawick and Edinburgh. After 5 1/2 miles you reach Westlinton. Go over the bridge
on the River Lyne and take care for the next mile or so as shortly afterwards is
a crossing point for deer, especially at dusk and dawn. You are now approaching Longtown.
Just before you enter the town there is a tiny junction on your left with a sign
to Arthuret Church. Follow this single track road for about ½ mile then turn right
and Arthuret Church is on your left.
Kirkandrews From the south;
Follow the directions above to Arthuret but keep on the A7 through Longtown and over
the Bridge on the Esk. Keep on the A7 for about 2 miles, (passing Cochranes a fantastic
flower and vegetable nursery on your left) then keep an eye out for a turning on
your right on a left hand bend. Follow this single track road for about 1 mile as
it twists and turns through fields and the church lies ahead of you.
Nicholforest From the south;
Follow the directions above to Arthuret but keep on the A7 through Longtown until
you get to the pelican crossing. Cross the crossing and take the next right at the
Bush Hotel. Bear left at the dog leg after 200 yards and then follow the road for
about 7 miles where you will come to a T junction. Turn right, taking care to watch
for traffic, follow this road for ½ mile and take the first left. Follow this road
past the Nicholforest Hall and the church will appear on your left.
