The £10m+ Heart of Hawick project is one of the biggest and most unique regeneration projects in the Scottish Borders. The project is a multi-agency arts and heritage initiative designed to contribute to the social, cultural and economic regeneration of Hawick and the wider Borders.

The project includes 3 main components – Borders Textile Towerhouse, Heritage Hub and Tower Mill, all located at the west end of Hawick High Street. For more information choose a section from menu.

Additional benefits of the project include:

  • Civic space – the creation of a central flat, easily accessed off-road civic space for performances, events, markets, street theatre, and festivals
  • James Thomson footbridge/cyclebridge over the River Teviot – opened November 2005
  • Town Centre Improvements – to improve the areas around the Tower Mill, Towerdykeside, Tower Knowe, High Street, Kirkstile and Silver Street areas
