The hills all Seem to consist of rocks of the Trap formation, & Strata having uniformly a dip to South. In the bottom of the Leader are found beds of red Sandstone, which is used for building. Strata of very fine gravel & Sand appear in many places, and are found at considerable elevations on the sides of the hills; A deep bed of Peat is found on the hills, wherever there is any great extent of flat surface.
This district is well wattered by many Streams of the purest waters, which flow copiously from the hills and fall into the rivulet of the principal Valley which, about the centre of the Parish, first receives the name Leader. From this place to where it meets the Tweed below Melrose, the length of the Leader is about 17 Miles. There are but few vestiges of antiquity in the parish - a holy well; and a road with the ruins of a house which devotees used in their pilgrimage to the abbey of Melrose. There are also on the top of Several hills very evident marks of ancient encampments.
