Dillichip Terrace
Dillichip Terrace
This long row of two-storey tenement buildings is 1-43 Dillichip Terrace. Dating from 1885, it is one of the few surviving examples (in this area) of housing that was originally built for workers in the local dyeing and printing industry. See also NS3979 : Rear view of Dillichip Terrace, Bonhill and NS3978 : Dillichip Terrace.

At the time of writing, building number 1 (at the far end) was a shop, but the remainder of the terrace was being used for housing.

Along the front of the terrace, there are several places where an original door has been partially blocked up to form a window, as is clearly evident from the resulting discontinuities in the brickwork. However, for most of them, a much more obvious sign is that the original doorsteps are still there.

As regards the terrace as a whole, compare NS4786 : Edmond Terrace, Croftamie, which is very similar, and which was also built to house local workers.
