‘New building’; there are no biggings at all marked on OS Pathf, but a settlement is shown here on the OS 6 inch (1856) map, described in the OS Name Book as ‘A few cottages ... the property of Mr J. Bogie’ (26, 5). Beside Newbigging to the west OS 6 inch 1st edn shows Knowes, described in the OS Name Book (ibid.) as: ‘Two cottage houses on the west side of Newbiggin [sic] having a Whinstone Quarry at the East end of them in which stone Coffins were found some of which contained human bones and ?’ (final word illegible).
