Footdee Conservation Area

Shed in South Square, Fittie - 27 11 1984

Footdee (known to most of the residents as Fittie) was developed, at the beginning of the 19th century, as a planned village with its characteristic north and south squares - Middle Row and Pilot's Square being added later.

When the original village was built around the open squares, the houses were uniform in width, height and depth with similar doors and windows; the only features which distinguished one house from another may have been the colour of the painted door or its individual number, the sheds or wash houses.

The St. Clement Free Church School grew up with the village.
