Dalkeith Corn Exchange

Dalkeith Corn Exchange
A Grade-A 19th Century Jacobean-style hall, which has undergone a full refurbishment to provide office, exhibition and museum space, along with hard landscaping. Part funded by Historic Scotland and the Heritage Lottery Fund, the project sympathetically integrates renewable technologies including GSH and photovoltaic panels.

The project involved the rescue, restoration and conversion of the much loved former indoor grain market into the new HQ for Melville Housing Association, in partnership with the Dalkeith History Society. Through collaboration with local Colleges and Universities a number of community engagement initiatives, including apprentice enterprise schemes in Traditional Construction Skills, helped to engage the local community and celebrate Dalkeith’s rich history and heritage.

The Corn Exchange was officially opened in June 2016 by HRH The Duke of Gloucester, with the museum opened by the Duke of Buccleuch.
