Looking Up High Street, Peebles by 

FEATURED in Quality Unlimited Photography 18-10-2010
TOP TEN WINNER in the Which Way Group – City Streets Challenge 10-03-2011

Camera: Canon EOS 400D, Lens: @ 47mm, ISO: 200, Aperture: f10, Shutter: 1/160

Taken from the steps of the Old Parish Church at Peebles, a beautiful little town in the Scottish Borders. Initially a market town, Peebles played a role in the woollen industry of the Scottish Borders up until the 1960s. Although one woollen mill remains operational in the town, the industrial composition of Peebles has changed; the town is now home to many people who commute to work in Edinburgh as well as being a popular tourist destination, especially in the summer. In the mid-to-late 1800s, this included health tourism, centring around hydropathic establishments, which over time morphed into hotel format, with Peebles Hydro Hotel being one of the few survivors of that era. Peebles has the highest shoe shop to population ratio in the UK.
