Old Photograph Dewartown Scotland

Old photograph of cottages in Dewartown near Pathhead in Midlothian, Scotland. The name of this village relates to the Dewar family who owned the nearby Vogrie House and Estate which is now in Vogrie Country Park. The village is reputed to have had five public houses during the 19th century, providing for the many farm workers, miners and house staff from the local community. Dewartown is still not listed on many maps, despite the fact a number of the cottages date back to the early 18th century. Signs erected in the late 1990s depicted the village as Dewarton, rather than Dewartown.
