Found an old map...

I was browsing in an antique shop in Edinburgh and stumbled upon an old map of Dalkeith. Looking more closely I saw that it had the army camp that forms Newbattle Abbey Business Park in full detail. The woods and grounds are littered with old foundations and bits of drainage etc which obviously once formed part of the camp. This map proved what I’d always thought - the camp was obviously much bigger than it is now.
