8062 Yetholm actually consists of two small villages - Kirk Yetholm and Town Yetholm - straddling the Bowmont River and nestling in the Cheviot foothills about 1 mile from the English/Scottish border. The name Yetholm is actually derived from the old Scots tongue - Yett being a gateway or entrance and Holm being a small park or field. Yetholm and the surrounding area is steeped in the Borders folklore and tradition. Being situated so close to what was once a fiercely disputed national border line, it was often used as a refuge for groups and individuals fleeing from one country to the other. Even to this day, in the hills above the village, there exists a 'Common Gate' where you can literally step through from Scotland to England (or vice versa). The Yetholm area is largely rural and as such has depended on agriculture for its existence. Farms in the area have been held by generations of the same families and associated trades such as blacksmiths, butchers, engineers and even rabbit catchers have all contributed to the lifestyle of the village.
