ROXBURGH STREET Roxburgh Street Name Boards
History of Kelso
Mr. Broomfield
009.04 A long street extending from the square or Market Place to the N.W. [North West] end of Bowmont Street close to the entrance of Floors Demesne. Some of the Houses and shops are of a superior character and others duly middling. The whole Street now bears the name of Roxburgh Street - but Roxburgh St. and Bowmont St. are modern names, as these Streets were known by different names in their respective localities - such as Cunzie Nook, Windy Gowl, Town Head etc. the latter being obsolete. The town's authorities did away with all these lesser names and adopted the two general names of Roxburgh St. and Bowmont St.
