Paxton

Towns & Villages

    Surrounded by farmland, Paxton is a traditional country village located between Duns and Berwick-upon-Tweed.

    The pretty village of Paxton lies next the River Tweed, one of the best salmon fishing rivers in the world. Spanning the River Tweed nearby is the Union Chain Bridge, opened in 1820, linking Scotland and England. At the time it was the largest wrought iron bridge of its kind in the world

    The award-winning Paxton House was built by the Adam brothers in 1758 for the young Patrick Home. It is arguably the finest example of 18th century neo-Palladian architecture in Scotland. The house also boasts a collection of Chippendale furniture, a large picture gallery and a fully restored working Georgian kitchen.
