On our return to Scotland, after our stay in Yorkshire, we stopped for a look at Jedburgh a border town in Scotland.
The town is well known for the abbey, which was founded in 1138.
Another attraction in the town is Mary, Queen of Scots House which houses the story of Mary’s life.
One aspect of Jedburgh that caught my eye was the signage on the various buildings. The first one was on the library.
This one made me laugh, why would you call a hotel the Spread Eagle Hotel? It made me think of spread-eagled meaning a person with arms and legs spread out ready to be flogged, or meaning in disarray. I have since discovered there are many hotels that go by this name, one of which is in the village where Midsomer Murders is filmed. We also have one in Melbourne. There must have been some significance attached to it but I don’t know what it was.
The last sign I liked because it was my name. 😉
