Statement of Interest

This is part of the Manderston estate, 1996. The farm house lies to SE, across the road and is separately listed as are the farm cottages. The name Edrom Newton is an old one, appearing on Pont's map of 1590s as "Newtoun of Eddram". The map of 1857 shows a long, possibly Georgian steading with its close opening off the main road. Originally the steading was separate of the Manderston estate, but was incorporated some time after 1855, when the estate was taken over by the shipping and railway magnate, William Miller. The rebuilding, on this site, was carried out on the orders of Richard Miller as a large model quadrangular steading with a detached terrace of cottages (see separate listing). The architect is not known, although clearly Bryce's influence is seen in the design.
