Statement of Special Interest

The Stockbridge Colonies lie in a semi-rural setting and forms the best of one of several schemes for workers housing built by co-operative housing associations and private speculators in the 1850s and 1860s. The foundation stone of the first row was laid on 23rd October 1861. By 1865 Reid Terrace, Rintoul, Hugh Miller and Colville Places had been built; the rest of the colonies followed and are shown as complete on the 1876 Ordnance Survey Map. The architects are not given. The Builder (July 5, 1862) refers to houses by J Dick Peddie and W L Moffat for the Edinburgh Association, but this may refer to the Edinburgh Association for Dwellings for the Industrial Classes. Although of a different design to the rest of the colonies, 1-8 Bridge Place is included as it is contemporary with the rest of the colonies and is integral to the streetscape.

The colonies comprise: 1-8 Bridge Place, 1-40 Reid Terrace , 1-33 Hugh Miller Place, 1-32 Rintoul Place, 1-30 Colville Place, 1-30 Collins Place, 1-30 Balmoral Place, 1-30 Dunrobin Place, 1-30 Teviotdale Place, 1-30 Avondale Place, 1-30 Kemp Place, 1-32 Bell Place, 1-8 Glenogle Place, 1-8 Glenogle House, 1-8 Glenogle Terrace.

About Listed Buildings

Listing is the way that a building or structure of special architectural or historic interest is recognised by law through the Planning (Listed Buildings and Conservation Areas) (Scotland) Act 1997.

We list buildings of special architectural or historic interest using the criteria published in the Historic Environment Scotland Policy Statement.

The statutory listing address is the legal part of the listing. The information in the listed building record gives an indication of the special architectural or historic interest of the listed building(s). It is not a definitive historical account or a complete description of the building(s). The format of the listed building record has changed over time. Earlier records may be brief and some information will not have been recorded.

Listing covers both the exterior and the interior. Listing can cover structures not mentioned which are part of the curtilage of the building, such as boundary walls, gates, gatepiers, ancillary buildings etc. The planning authority is responsible for advising on what is covered by the listing including the curtilage of a listed building. For information about curtilage see Since 1 October 2015 we have been able to exclude items from a listing. If part of a building is not listed, it will say that it is excluded in the statutory address and in the statement of special interest in the listed building record. The statement will use the word 'excluding' and quote the relevant section of the Historic Environment Scotland Act 2014. Some earlier listed building records may use the word 'excluding', but if the Act is not quoted, the record has not been revised to reflect current legislation.

If you want to alter, extend or demolish a listed building you need to contact your planning authority to see if you need listed building consent. The planning authority is the main point of contact for all applications for listed building consent.
