About Castle Gate

The building that projects out on the left hand side is Number 48 Castlegate, dating from the 17th century. From here upwards, the houses mostly date from the 19th century but all have typically narrow strips of gardens or tofts to the rear.
When Number 60 Castlegate was reconstructed in the early 20th century, it was found that much of the paving in the garden consisted of tombstones from the Abbey . Clearly, the ruins of the Abbey were used as a source of stone for the people of Jedburgh. If you look up at the buildings on your right, you will see a stone carving of a bull. This came from the former coaching inn, the Black Bull, which is now Number 10 Canongate.
