Statement of Interest

Good survival of early grain store situated at the harbour of Bo'ness, a major exporter of grain. The rows of wallhead chimneys are indicative of the grain drying function. Awarded the Saltire Society Award for Housing Area Rehabilitation in 1980. Waggon Road formed part of the route of a coal waggon-way constructed by the trustees of Dr John Roebuck in 1772. The route ran from new pits on high ground to the south of Bo'ness, northwards down Church Wynd and along the shore to the West Pier.
