Geocache Description:

One of the caches originally set for The Haggis and Penguins Event 2009.

The Carter Bar is the point at which the A68 crosses the England-Scotland border. In 1575 Carter Bar was the scene of the Raid of the Redeswire, one of the last large-scale battles between the English and the Scots. Carter Bar was the location of Truce days, that were held between the Lord Wardens of the Marches of both countries to dispense cross border justice in the Late Mediæval and Early Modern periods. Truce days were also held at Carlisle and Berwick upon Tweed. A quick easy find on the England/Scotland border - some great views too !!
