On Friday 14th October 1881, a violent European Windstorm struck the South East coast of Scotland. During the next few hours, 19 fishing boats and 189 East coast fishermen were lost that day. The memorial at the top of the cliffs, as you enter the Fishing Village of St Abbs, in the Scottish Borders was sculpted recently by Jill Watson. It has been commissioned by the people of Berwickshire to commemorate the surviving widows and children of the 3 fishermen from St Abbs who lost their lives that day.
