Part of a B-Group with Laigh Kirk and Kirkyard, 3 & 5 Bank Street and 26 - 34 Bank Street. Bank Street is one of the older streets within the town. Although developed in the 18th century from the Kirkhaugh, retail and residential building occurred primarily in the mid 19th century. The earlier 20th century shop front has remained largely untouched by the secession of retailers to use the premises.
