Statement of Interest

The village of Pathhead grew considerably during the latter part of the 18th century, almost doubling in size. This was due to advanced farming techniques and the introduction of industry (mines, quarries and lime kilns) to the area. Pathhead grew again at the beginning of the 20th century, with the introduction of Local Authority Housing to its southside, whilst the main street remained relatively unchanged. This run of buildings is one of the earliest surviving in the main street.
