No 3 Mill Wynd - Tower House

3 Mill Wynd

This is reputed to be the site referred to in the sasine of Robert Lauder in 1568 as "The manor place, tower and fortalice, houses, yards, orchards (etc) bounded by the back of the Burgh wall on the south". This building is thought to have been occupied until about 1649. Lauderdale family accounts record the employment of James Bennet, mason, for 'taking down' the old tower of Lauder (1699-1701) and removing the foundations at a cost of 133 6s 6d.

Tower House was built as a manse for the Free Kirk which stood at the bottom of Kirk Wynd.

Crossing over Mill Wynd you will find Lauder Kirk on your left hand side.
