Beating the bounds
If you go to
and listen again to the latest (Feb 10) edition of Digging Up Your Roots, you'll hear Charlbury museum curator Ron Prew talking about the drowning of a young girl in the mill stream in 1924 during the annual beating the bounds. The girl was the aunt of Susan Leckie, a listener to Radio Scotland who told her story to the programme. Her story starts about 15 minutes into the programme.
