Remember this?

last sheep drive 2last sheep drivechelford market

I was out for an 'airing' today and something made me think about the last time sheep were driven on foot to Marshall's, the old Chelford livestock market. The sheep came from the fields off Carter lane and were driven all the way around Dixon Drive. The pictures are from the Summer of 2009.

It's amazing to think now, with the new houses nearing completion and new neighbours settling in happily that the market had been in place for over 100 years.

So, especially for everyone who has moved into Galloway Grange, here's a little taste of what went on there some years ago.
