Summary : Major drove road linking Morpeth with Kelso, crossing the English and Scottish border at Outer Cock Law. Mentioned in charters of 1181 and 1226.
More information : Centred NT 87761310 CLENNELL STREET (OE) (1)

(NT87501367 - NT9216047) ERNSPETH, c AD 1220 (2)

(Extends from NT 87501367 to NT 92160647)
The survival of the name "ERNSPETH" from the 13th cent is shown by
the modern use of "YARNSPATH LAW" (at NT 8631350 "ERNSPETH"
undoubtedly means "eagles" path", descriptive of its direction over
the mountains. The root 'earn' in OE means 'eagle', but it is
impossible to distinguish from the personal name "EARN'. Its
course is obstructed by at least six cross dykes. (3)

The great road of YARNSPETH (ERNSPETH) is mentioned in
a charter of ODINEL DE UMFRAMVILLE in 1181 and again in a charter of
RICHARD DE UMFRAMVILLE (died 1226) (4)
