Melrose, Scottish Borders
The Dingleton boiler house is a fine unaltered example of a monolithic concrete building by the internationally renowned Borders based architect Peter Womersley (1923-1993) which stands as a landmark piece of sculpture high over the village of Melrose. It received a Commendation from the Financial Times Architecture Awards in 1978 and was noted for the quality of its pre-cast concrete construction. Womersley used concrete increasingly in his later works as it gave him freedom to create more sculptural forms, of which the boiler house is a fine example.
