Beating the bounds

If you go to
www.bbc.co.uk/scotland/radioscotland/programmes/diggingupyourroots/
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.
