Blacksmill  Berwickshire


In 1882-4, Frances Groome's Ordnance Gazetteer of Scotland described Blacksmill like this:

Blacksmill, a hill, a hamlet, and a burn, in Lammermuir, Berwickshire. The hill, 905 feet above sea-level, is on the mutual border of Langton and Longformacus parishes, 2½ miles SSE of Longformacus village. The hamlet is on the NW border of Langton parish, and lies near the burn, 1½ mile SE of Longformacus village. The burn rises on the eastern skirts of the hill, runs 2½ miles north-by-eastward to Dye Water, a little below Longformacus village, and contains a good store of trout.
