James McLaren, dated 1856. Small Jacobean styled mansion house, two-storey with single-storey wings. Rubble and slate. Interesting interiors.

Statement of Interest

Panbride House was designed by James McLaren for John Dickson. Dickson built the house after he purchased Panbride Bleachfields for £4220 in 1851 (Dumfries and Galloway Standard, 2 July 1851). The bleachfields, for the bleaching of flax yarn, were built in 1841 by Lord Panmure. Panbride House was completed in 1856, as indicated by a dated carved panel on its south elevation.

In the early 20th century Panbride House was owned by Lieutenant Colonel Edwin Houtonville Richardson. Lt Col Richardson pioneered the training of Airedale Terriers for military service. They were trained to locate injured soldiers on the battlefield, sentry work and carry messages and supplied to the trenches in the First World War. His first trained dogs were given to Glasgow Police in 1905 and are believed to be the first official police dogs in the United Kingdom.

Statutory address and listed building record revised in 2018. Previously listed as 'Panbride House'.
