Statement of Interest

Now used as offices, this building was the home of Matthew Anderson, elder in the parish church and local meal dealer and maltster, whose coat-of-arms appears in the strapwork cartouche which was probably transferred from an earlier building on this site. A blocked doorway in the NE corner of the boundary wall would have given access to the churchyard.
