Statement of Interest

B-Group comprises Nos 1, 3, 5, 7, 11, 19, 2, 4, 6, 10 and 12 Howegate - see separate list entries. Interest here lies both in the original buildings and in the irregular street which they make up - its curved form being of particular note since it is said to follow the medieval building line.

Comprehensive redevelopment of Howegate from 1978 onwards by Aitken Turnbull resulted in two Civic Trust Awards (1982 and 1986), as well as a Borders Regional Council Award for Conservation (1986).

A building is shown on this site in earlier maps than the 2nd Edition Ordnance Survey of 1897, but its style indicates a later- or late-19th-century date. List description revised following resurvey (2008).
