Statement of Interest

B-Group with Avernish, Broughton Green House, Dassfauld, Dumra, Kintyre Cottage, The Lodge.

Broughton Stores is a good example of a street front village property which makes a contribution to the streetscape of the local area. It is likely that this building was originally built at the same height as the neighbouring cottages but raised at the time when the hoodmoulded windows were installed. The building is thought to have been used as a schoolroom in the 1860s and 1870s.

Broughton Village was developed as an estate village to the former Broughton House and owned by the Lairds of the Barony of Broughton until 1921 at which point it was put up for public sale. The Symington, Broughton and Biggar Railway was opened in 1860 allowing business men to travel daily to Glasgow and Edinburgh resulting in an expansion of the village with new villas being built although the main street has retained its distinct early 19th century form.

Formerly listed as part of a long run of cottages, 'Broughton Village, 7 Cottages, Broughton Green House, Etc (See Paper List for Full Details)' List description updated and category changed from B to C(S) in 2011 following reassessment of the street.
