Front of the Loreburn Hall - 43 Newall Terrace
Front of the Loreburn Hall - 43 Newall Terrace
Built in 1890 (date stone over door) for the local Volunteer Militia. There is a splendid pair of carved lions at the entrance, and an ornate metal crown on the roof (for more information see RCAHMS LinkExternal link and Historic Scotland LinkExternal link ).
Attached to the rear of the building is a large hall - originally the drill hall - which became a popular venue for concerts, shows, sports and dancing. The Loreburn Hall was mothballed when a new leisure centre opened in 2008 NX9776 : DG One: Main Entrance , but a catalogue of defects developed at the latter. With DG One needing an extended closure for repairs in 2014, the Loreburn Hall was reprieved. Dumfries & Galloway Council have renovated it to provide a temporary fitness suite LinkExternal link , and subsequently the management of the hall will be taken over by a charitable trust (see the Loreburn Hall Trust's Facebook page, which has lots of photos LinkExternal link ). Offices at the front have continued in use.
