Architectural Trail

Bowling Club B&w

The Galashiels Bowling Club pavilion is a good example of the ‘Arts and Crafts’ style, with an “English” half-timbered approach to the frontage. It is unusual in being a two-storey design with a balcony, though this was presumably done in part because of the limited overall site area.

Later in 1892, a similar two-storey half-timbered bowling club pavilion was built in Hawick.

This building is Category C listed.
