Hawick Town Trail

About This Route

Hawick is the most southerly town in the region but sits on one of the historical major routes south to Carlisle and north to Edinburgh. Unsurprisingly it was a market town before the dawn of the Industrial Revolution, however, after the mills came the town production boomed; in 1771 the town manufactured 2,000 pairs of stockings by 1838 this figure was 1,049,676. Unfortunately in recent years Wilton Mills have been demolished but you can still visit many of her historic buildings by following this guide which suggests three different routes. There are plaques on the buildings that are highlighted in the trail. This will give you an opportunity to explore streets that you might not have thought to visit.
