The subject of an extensive restoration programme as a result of a Townscape Heritage Initiative, the building was previously in very poor condition and completely roofless prior to work commencing in 2002. The building is one of a group of five at The Cross, all of which were repaired and restored using traditional materials and techniques. Located in the very heart of Beith, this group now forms an impressive focal point in the town.
