Corn Exchange (1860)

School Brae, Peebles

Near the top of school brae stands the old Corn Exchange.

Built to serve the needs of farmers and merchants for trading because Peebles had become a busy county town and market.

It ceased trading as such soon after the Caledonian Railway was opened in1864.
