The Coble House, Marine Parade, Eyemouth
The building is so called as its original roof was an upturned coble, the traditional fishing boat of north-east England. The house has stood here for over 150 years. At the front, to the left of the main door, you can see where the barometer used to be mounted above the concrete step. This was the famous instrument consulted by local fishermen on the fateful Friday morning, 14th October 1881. A total of 189 fishermen were lost at sea in the subsequent storm of Black Friday, including 129 from Eyemouth.

The Coble House was associated with activities relating to commercial fishing until the middle of the last century. The building was subsequently used by Eyemouth Sailing Club and then the Sub Aqua Club. The building was refurbished in 2009 and is currently used by Eyemouth Community Rowing.
