Statement of Interest

NMRS photographs from 1974 show interior details of old fireplaces, corbelling and a blind arcade on the 2nd floor prior to demolition in 1976, rebuilt using brick. R M Livingstone reported "the entire Northern gable and flank walls fronting High Street, including forestair, chimney, crowsteps and fenestration being preserved, renovated and incorporated in any replacement building which will be of a constant traditional design and of similar proportions to the existing". He further mentions the existence of title deeds dated 1764.
