Polwarth, Scottish Borders
Polwarth Parish Church was built in 1703, replacing a 13th-century building. Polwarth Castle was situated halfway between Polwarth village and Polwarth Parish Church.
The Polwarth Thorn was a thorn tree which was used in village festivities. Several verses and melodies have arisen, e.g.:
- At Polwarth on the green / Our forebears oft are seen / To dance about the thorn / When they got in their corn. - Also: At Polwarth on the Green / If you'll meet me in the morn / Where lads and lasses do convene / To dance around the thorn.
- McKinnon, E E (1969) 'Polwarth Mill, Nr Duns, hammer stone'
- John Mackay Wilson, 'Polwarth on the Green', in 'Tales of the Borders' (1835)
