The Langholm Cornet


The Langholm Initiative and Border Fine Arts – Enesco are working together to celebrate Langholm’s most cherished tradition The Common Riding.

In 2007, the Langholm Initiative commissioned a figurine of the Langholm Cornet in honour of all Langholm’s past Cornets and the 2007 Cornet, W Andrew Johnstone . The first figurine, hand crafted and painted in Langholm, was presented to Cornet Johnstone  at the Border Fine Arts Studio on Thursday 5th July 2007.

In the special 250th anniversary year, the 2009 Cornet, Derek Hogg was presented with a cornet from new director David Yarrow.

In 2010, the Cornet Graeme Murray received his figurine from the Chairman of the Langholm Initiative Gavin Graham.

Cornet Lee Earsman was the recipient in 2011 and was presented the figurine by Chairman Gavin Graham and the staff at the Langholm Initiative outside their offices at Buccleuch Mill.

Andrew Elliot is the Cornet for 2012. He is seen receiving his figurine from David Yarrow the chairman of the Langholm Initiative along with Director Anne Murray and staff Judith Johnson, Cat Barlow and Fiona Reeves. Volunteer Mark Hodgson is also present.

2013 Cornet Alasdair Cavers is seen receiving the figurine - hand-painted by Morag McGill - from Initiative director Anne Murray. Also present are the right hand and left hand men Andrew Elliott and Lee Earsman, Morag McGill from Border Fine Arts and Initiative staff Judith Johnson and Fiona Reeves.

Each year a new figurine is produced, featuring the Common Riding colours of that year, as determined by the colours of the winner of the Derby. The figurine is available to order from the Langholm Initiative as a lasting memento of the Langholm Common Riding, and buyers can elect to have the colours painted for the year of their choice.
