Statement of Interest

The coach house/stable part of this building is shown on the 1858 OS map, perhaps forming a smaller complex than presently exists, and was named Linnburn. The present lodge and arch were built later, perhaps to become the lodge and stable court to Cadzowburn, 59 Union street, next door, as suggested by the gatepiers at the west boundary wall. Cadzowburn (also listed) does not appear on the 1858 OS map.
