Work to bring back to life one of Midlothian’s most historically significant buildings, the Dalkeith Corn Exchange, has begun.
The launch of Melville Housing Association’s project marked the start of a week long exhibition at Dalkeith Library of the latest plans for the Grade A listed building.
The £3.8 million restoration project is being made possible thanks to grant funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund and Historic Scotland in addition to Melville’s contribution.
The building’s community use will include a new Dalkeith Museum, managed by the Dalkeith History Society, while the reception area of Melville’s new office will will include a permanent exhibition of the history of the Corn Exchange.
