Bloody Saturday

Looking north towards the Firth of Forth
East Lothian, where I now live, is replete with sites of historical interest. Many are just a short distance away, and I often use the excuse of visiting them to take the bike out for a spin.

After adjusting the clutch recently, I made the short two mile trip to the memorial for the Battle of Pinkie Cleugh to make sure that everything was working as it should.

The battle site is now farmland, and the main A1 arterial road runs through what was, in 1547, the site of the last pitched battle between the armies of Scotland and England.

On this occasion, the away team won the day.
