Description


Murders, riots, strikes and runaway horses. Midlothian in the 18th and 19th centuries was an interesting place to live.

This book introduces the reader to the hard lives of the colliers, the birth of the rural police force and the impact the army had on life in the county south of Scotland's capital city. Highwaymen and grave robbers, footpads and murderers, illicit distillers and murderous poachers; all lived or worked in Midlothian at a time when Scotland was changing from a rural to an industrial nation.

Midlothian Mayhem opens the door to this time and place, giving you a view of this fascinating area through different eyes.
