St Abbs Harbour added to Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Scotland by jaybee on 17/12/2023

St Abbs: Avengers Endgame Filming Location

Located on the east coast of Scotland north of Eyemouth on the Berwickshire coast, this fishing village was chosen to play the role of New Asgard, where they filmed the hilarious Thor scene (if you’ve seen the film, you’ll know what I’m talking about!).

They’ve even made a sign when you drive into the fishing village that reads ‘New Asgard’- just brilliant!

St Abb's Not far from scottish borders.St Abbs was originally called Coldingham Shore. Prior to any buildings the fishermen who worked their boats from the beach resided at Fisher's Brae in Coldingham. These fishermen had to carry their fishing gear one and a half miles down a path to where their fishing vessels were tied up. The path is now known as the Creel Path; creel is the local name for a lobster pot.

The first building in St Abbs was constructed in about the middle of the 18th century followed later by a row of five cottages. This first row of houses was constructed in a traditional Scottish style with a central fire and a wide chimney. The walls were constructed of "clat and clay," a framework of wood interlaced with straw and daubed with moist clay.

By 1832 it is recorded that the inhabitants of the Shore comprised 16 families who, with 20 others residing in Coldingham, made their living by fishing. In addition to these residents, 30 people proceeded annually to the north for the herring fishing, which provided employment for 14 boats from the village.

The village was renamed at the end of the 19th century by the then-laird, Andrew Usher, who played a major role in improving the fishing village and harbour.[1] Usher purchased the Northfield estate on the edge of the village, enlarging and finishing the building of a countryside manor by the coastal shore in 1892.[1] He considered the local public hall inadequate and subsequently funded a new village hall and school, which was constructed in 1887 and is now occupied by the St Abbs visitor centre.[1] Usher also gave funds for the building of the local church in 1892 and the extension of the outer harbour wall in 1890.[1]

In November 1907 the Member of Parliament (MP) for Berwickshire, Harold Tennant, announced that the Royal National Lifeboat Society had agreed to supply St Abbs with a lifeboat, and that the Board of Trade had also agreed to place life-saving apparatus at St Abbs as soon as possible.[2]

On 5 September 1914, HMS Pathfinder was sunk off St Abbs Head by the German U-21, the first Royal Navy ship to be sunk by a U-boat.

ICI Power Station (By Kcscott)

The power station and buildings have been Abandoned since 2000s and the buildings going to ruins. Plenty to see and explore with the drone as there are also smaller buildings situated around the grounds.
History:
The Power station is situated on the old ICI site which was a leader in explosive and chemical manufacturing. Many processes in explosive manufacture require steam, heat or power - in most explosive factories, this is provided by at least one on-site power plant, and ICI Ardeer was no exception. The power plant still standing is not the original, it probably dates from the '40s or '50s. Three coal-fired boilers provided steam which was sent through insulated overground pipes to buildings all over the factory, and there was also enough steam to drive two electrical generators.

Prospect Park and The Mansion House (By apreading)

Plenty of parking in or around the park. Dense woodland at the top, so probably best to fly the drone from the open areas at the foot of the hill, which are wide open spaces.

The Mansion House has an interesting history and is an iconic and well known building in West Reading. Some
