Statement of Interest

B-Group comprises Nos 41, 43 & 43A, 45 & 47 and 49 North Bridge Street - see separate list entries.

A well-proportioned former house designed by Hawick's most prominent architect, James Pearson Alison, who was also responsible for the adjacent Nos 43 to 49. This building is more sober in design than the others, which are in a lively Dutch-inspired Art Nouveau style, but is visually united with them by the use of red sandstone, and the doorway in particular reflects at Alison's Arts and Crafts sympathies. Alison commenced practice in the town in 1888 and remained there until his death in 1932, during which period he was responsible for a large number of buildings of widely varying types and styles, including a considerable proportion of Hawick's listed structures.

The building is currently occupied by the North Bridge Dental Surgery (2007). List description revised and category changed from B to C(S) following resurvey (2008).
