Signs of Dere Street
Dere Street ran north from York to the Firth of Forth, passing through Aldborough, Piercebridge, Corbridge and Newstead. A section of the Roman road can be followed to the south-west of Soutra Aisle as it cuts across the Lammermuir Hills before it drops down to the Forth.
The road continued in use into the Medieval period.
This section of the road is in the case of Historic Scotland.
