Former Berwickshire High School building, Duns
Former Berwickshire High School building, Duns
The former building which housed Berwickshire High School before it moved across the road to a new site in 2009. The large building was built in 1958 and designed by J and F Johnson. The building was used as a school for 51 years before the new building opened and has since been vacant. The building is category B listed, with a description on the Historic Scotland webiste (here: LinkExternal link stating the building is "a fine example of a streamlined Modernist building, redolent in period details such as box frame windows".

I imagine that the size of the building, its listed status, and the small range of possible occupiers in a town as small as Duns will make re-purposing the building difficult.
