The advantages of the Grammar & English schools are monopolised by the Middle class of the Town and suburbs, and the Roxburgh penny a week School is provided for the poorer class; but this Monopoly of ancient institutions and funds is not more conspicuous in Kelso than in other Monastic Towns. A hearse and fire Engine are kept in part of the lower story of the building. The police station adjoins.
