Statement of Interest

The Auld Mill Inn is a good example of an earlier 19th dwelling which has been altered to form a public house. The Inn has a good late 19th century fa├žade, with original details intact to the pillastered frontage and the pointed timber dormers. The Inn has important streetscape value, prominently sited at the SE corner of Bank Street opposite the Cornmill Fountain and the Burgh Chambers in an area that was often used for public meetings and gatherings. The Inn survives in an unmodernised condition with the late 19th century timber street frontage significantly unaltered adding character to the immediate surroundings.
