Statement of Interest

Currently (1987) unused but evidently of grandeur and extensive variety in 19th century. Roxburgh archive records mason's account for hot-house, ice house, sundial, peach house and repairing kennels, building gate

pillars and repairing deer park dyke in 1810-12, probably referring to works at Broxmouth Park.
