Normal topicThe Wyverns on Grange Loan

The Dick Lauder family lived in Grange House which was demolished in 1936. Two pillars each surmounted with a stone wyvern were a feature of the house seen by Walter Scott as a boy. They were preserved and moved to lauder Loan, one at the junction with Lovers Loan. More information about them is in the Green Book appendix VII http://gaedin.co.uk/wp/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/appVIII.pdf . Because these features are deteriorating (one fell off its pillar in the 1980s) we have had 3D scans made of them. The scans can be downloaded at http://gaedin.co.uk/wp/new-history/3d-scan-of-the-wyverns/ . They are large pdf files about 20M and have to be viewed with Adobe Acrobat. If this is not your default programme, you would need to download the file then open in Acrobat Reader.

A Wyvern is a mythical beast used in heraldry. It is a form of dragon with two legs, wings and a forked tail. It can be distinguished from a Griffin because the latter has four legs and a Wyvern two.
