Statement of Interest

A well-proportioned early 19th century terrace close to the heart of Hawick. Buccleuch Street was laid out west of the medieval burgh boundary from 1815 in response to industrial expansion, replacing Langbaulk Road as the principal road south, and this is one of the earliest buildings on its south side.

There are no remaining interior features to the ground-floor shops; access to the interiors of the upper floors was not obtained at resurvey (2007/8), but they are understood to have been entirely modernised in the late 20th century. Revised as part of the Hawick Burgh Resurvey (2008).
