THREE historic artefacts over 100 years old have been donated to Gretna Green.

The hand-drawn sketches were donated by a Fife-based man named Michael Pearson who found them in his loft.

They were by his grandfather, Sydney Pearson, who lived in Gretna Green dated August 1917.

Sketches depict the famous Blacksmiths Shop, Gretna Old Parish Church, Sark Toll Bar (Old Toll Bar).

Michael Pearson said: "Knowing these will be in your safekeeping is greatly reassuring to me and I want to thank you for the interest you have shown in this work.”

Isabel Rhodes, chief executive at Gretna Green, said, “It is very important for us to preserve our heritage. As a business with over 260 years of history at its heart, artefacts like these help enrich the story of Gretna Green."
