Rediscovering Melrose Parish

Media Releases

Historic Scotland inspectors are to visit the Parish of Melrose to identify the important buildings and to review existing listings. The team will visit the parish looking for buildings that merit listing while giving a fresh appraisal to properties already on the list. This will ensure the area has the appropriate statutory protection. Head of Listing Dr Deborah Mays, said: “Whilst the burgh of Melrose was assessed previously, the wider parish has not been comprehensively surveyed since 1971. The parish has a long history of farming and is peppered with historic villages such as Newtown St Boswells and Gattonside, and fine estates including Abbotsford.”
