Peebles Valley: A central part of White River’s history

We are hugely indebted to Tony Haig for sharing a fascinating piece of local history with us. In 2000, a Mr A Macleod wrote the history of Peebles between 1850 and 2000, based on interviews with Brian Simmons, Paul Dell and Bobby Lawrence and reading the works of Hans Bornman, Harry Wolhuter, HS Webb and BP Simmons. There are many familiar White River pioneering names in that list!
