Cross Wynd in 1960 (Canmore image SC01589251)

Cross Wynd runs from north to south, at right angles to the High Street, It starts at High Street, continues to a cross-roads separating Brunton Street and Horsemarket and ends at Back Dykes.

Much of the west side of Cross Wynd was demolished to form Brunton Green and a car park.

Until the drainage works in 1901, a burn ran down the centre of the Wynd, bringing yellow sand from the hill. Housewives would bring their pots and pans here to wash and scour them.[1]
