Statement of Interest

The smithy occupies a very prominent position in the centre of Ednam at the apex of the junction between the B6461 to Kelso and the minor road connecting Ednam with the A698. A smithy in this position can be traced on maps from at least the early 19th century and possibly earlier. The smithy cottage positioned to the SE appears to have been built by the mid-19th century. The symmetrical arrangement and the piend-roofed wings are rather unusual.
