Mauchline Conservation Area Gazetteer

To support the ongoing maintenance of all properties within the Conservation Area, Mauchline CARS conservation accredited architects prepared the Mauchline Conservation Area Gazetteer.

The Gazetteer is a "snapshot in time" of every historical property within the Conservation Area and its current priority grading at the time of preparing the Gazetteer. Furthermore this document is aimed to become a "living document" whereby it will be updated regularly when properties receive works.

This will include works under the grant funding supplied by Mauchline CARS and also any privately instructed works.

Mauchline CARS colour palette

Prime development in central Mauchline was from the mid-18th century to early 20th century, half of the Georgian period and all of the Victorian period. Due to the fashion at the time and the affordable paint pigments that were available the traditional Victorian colour palette was dark, with rich shades of maroon, red, burgundy, chestnut, dark greens, browns and blue.
