Statement of Interest

Converted from an early 17th century house to an electricity substation for the South of Scotland Electricity board by I G Lindsay in 1962. The tall crowsteps indicate that the house was formerly thatched. The internal doors to NE suggest that this and the adjacent 20 Mid Causeway were linked internally.
