Halliwell's Close. Halliwell's House museum is here, which tells the story of Selkirk over the years. This narrow, shadowy, cobbled close is typical of how much of Selkirk would have looked during the eighteenth century. There would have been a variety of trades undertaken here. At one time a wig maker lived here, and in later years an ironmonger's shop was set up. going through the pend takes you to Market Place.
