009.04 The popular, and the really remotest source of the Tweed is a paltry fountain Called "Tweed's-well", a little above the farm house of "Tweedshaws", & at the foot of a hill named "Tweeds Cross", about 1500 feet above the level of the Sea. The Tweed, directly, or indirectly, drains nearly the whole of the Central and Eastern border Counties of Scotland and the Northern portion of Northumberland to the extent of 1870 Square Miles. From its remotest source, to the Sea at Berwick upon Tweed it, performs, irrespectively of its windings, a run of about 100 miles.
