What is currently a showground and caravan park in Kelso became known as Springwood Park in 1750 when Admiral Sir James Douglas (1704-1787) purchased the land and changed its name from Bridgend.

 

The house fell into disrepair under the 6th baronet, Sir James Louis Fitzroy Scott Douglas, and was torn down after his death in 1969 (the contents having been sold at auction to cover his debts).

 

Further details of Springwood Park cane be found in the Kelso Bordernet website.
