The Stocking Mill

Situated on the west side of the village near the children's  playpark and tucked behind another house  this Stocking Mill in the village dates from the late 18th century.

 

A three-storey, 2- by 6-bay rubble building with small windows for individual stocking frames in the upper floors was later converted to a warehouse by the insertion of a door and wall crane at first-floor level and is now a private house.

This mill represents an interim stage between cottage industry and the full-blown factory production of the Hawick mills.

It is now a private house.
