Gavinton  Berwickshire


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

Gavinton, a village in Langton parish, Berwickshire, 2 miles SW of Duns. Built in 1760 to supersede the ancient village of Langton, which stood ½ mile to the N, it took its name from Mr Gavin, the then proprietor, and is a neat place, on a regular plan, with a post office under Duns and Langton parish church.
