The village of Parton consists principally of a row of six terraced houses, an unique clock tower (formerly a byre and then a communal laundry) which were constructed in 1901 by B. R. Murray to provide a Library, Reading Room, Blacksmiths and Post Office for the local area. The village declined in the post war years and was all but condemned in the 1960’s as it only had outdoor toilet facilities. It was then largely derelict until purchased by builders John Gibson and Son from the Parton Village Trust, to whom it had been left, who re-furbished the entire village over a period of two years, and won a Conservation Award from the Association for Protection for Rural Scotland in 1979. In 2001 this award was again recognised when Parton was awarded a special recognition of the aprs 75th anniversary. The houses are B Listed and form a charming row, largely unchanged from their 1901 appearance, thanks to their sensitive restoration.
