Statement of Interest

Forms part of Main Street B Group extending on E side from Dunbridge House to the Plough Hotel. The OS Namebook describes the Plough as "a nice respectable country Inn and the first house of entertainment in Town Yetholm, where there is good accommodation for travellers and suitable stabling for horses". A photograph of of the Plough Inn (see refs) dating from the 1890s shows a symmetrical 3-bay building, apparently executed in coursed ashlar with small-pane sash and case windows and a simple pedimented doorpiece. The W gable of the outhouse (now obscured by additions) is also visible.
