Paxton’s waterwheel project is on target for completion later this year. This photo shows the Scottish Borders community payback team constructing the new access stairway down to the site. The pump and wheel are being restored by specialist engineers JPS in Alloa, and masonry and sluices on site re being reinstated by local builder Steve Richards with help from volunteers.
Come along and enjoy the easter activities at Paxton House!
We have a fantastic Easter Egg Trail which runs every day from the 1st of April to the 23rd of April. This get the kids out and about into the Paxton House grounds to hunt for clues- when they have solved the puzzle they get rewarded with a delicious chocolatey prize!
There are four different children’s activities running throughout the holidays on the 11th, 13th , 18th and 20th of April. Choose between making an Spring craft or doing some pond dipping!
