Statement of Interest

This small group of unusual red brick cottages, apparently heavily influenced by south of England design, contrast dramatically with Stonehaven's sandstone terraces. The listing of Nos 1, 2 and 3 Bridgefield Terrace is supported by grouping with 1 and 3 Bridgefield, all of which are thought to have been built as housing for mill workers. The land was feued in 1902 and subsequently purchased by the Police Board. The bricks are thought to be from 'Pugeston' brickworks near Montrose. All of these houses are now (2006) privately owned.
