Work has begun on a £600,000 refurbishment of Moffat town hall.
The hall, which was built in 1827, was bought by a local trust in 2009.
Members from the trust have now taken control of the management of the repair works, which are being jointly financed between Historic Scotland and Dumfries and Galloway Council.
Major repairs to the windows, roof and stonework are needed to preserve the building.
