Welcome to the Cornhill-on-Tweed Community Website


 The village of Cornhill lies on the Scottish Border, approximately 1½ miles from Coldstream, and so is on the northerly edge of Northumberland. It was in ancient times known as Cornell. The parish carries the same name and incorporates Old and New Heaton and Tillmouth. The river Tweed runs eastward about a mile from the village, where there is an eighteenth century bridge with a span of five arches over the river. Agriculture plays a part here, with a rich soil that supports diverse crops such as turnips, beans, and a variety of grains.

Cornhill was, for political purposes, part of the county of Durham, but in 1844 by act of parliament was separated from it and then joined with Northumberland. The Anglican St. Helen's Church is dedicated to St. Helen, the mother of Constantine the Great, the first Christian Emperor. Legend says that it was erected in 1082AD, because Norham had become the property of Durham Cathedral. It has undergone rebuilding and restoration work both in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, with the bell tower being added in 1840. The Church could boast a harmonium by 1856, when the choir was created. In addition to this, the rectory held a lending library of 300 volumes. There have been several gifts bestowed upon this church by the Earls and Countesses of Home, including stained glass windows, an organ, and a new font.

A school was raised in 1837, for the education of both boys and girls following the national system. The master's house was constructed in 1860, the land for both buildings being given by the Collingwoods. The school was enlarged and improved in 1868 at a cost of nearly £200. The school was closed however in 2012.

New LED Lamppost Information

for Cornhill-on-Tweed and Donaldson's Lodge

*UPDATE ON CORNHILL'S LED LIGHTING

NCCs Highways & Neighbourhood Services Department has advised the Parish Council about the Scheduled timing for the completion of the LED Lighting Project.

The latest programme from contractors Galliford Try shows a completion date for all new columns and LED lantern work to be completed by the 3rd week in September 2018. This does not include any lighting units mounted on Scottish Power network poles, which will not be completed until the 3rd week of October 2018. In Cornhill, we have a number of these Scottish Power poles, so our lighting will not be finished until the later date.

 Retired Greyhound Trust Logo

  RGT Scottish Borders - Ivy

Please help retired greyhounds!

I am collecting used postage stamps on behalf of the Retired Greyhound Trust - (Charity nos. 269668 and SC044047).

These can be sold to look after and find forever homes for retired greyhounds, many of whom would otherwise have to be put to sleep

The RGT collects all stamps (providing they are undamaged) from normal 1st and 2nd class UK stamps to foreign, special edition and first day covers.

Just tear the stamps off your envelopes leaving a quarter of an inch surround, and when you have a good pile of them, either email me on or phone 01890 820501, and as long as you are reasonably local, I will arrange to pick them up. Thank you.
