Beefy on Abbey walkabout

editorial image

This week’s delve into the archives has provided this hidden gem, which according to our sources never actually appeared in print. It shows Sir Ian Botham shaking hands with Provost Brian Milne outside Arbroath Abbey just before setting out on the next leg of his fundraising walk in aid of Leukaemia Research. It is understood this picture was taken at some point in the 1990s, but we are not exactly sure when.
