    Most recently owned by Inveresk, this mill has been closed since 2005 and will be reclaimed for housing.

    Sadly most of the buildings have been demolished. So here's the old paper mill plant, courtesy of those that didn't want you to know about it...

    The workmen were on site, so we were quite restricted. Mind you there was only one industrial building left intact anyway, the power house...

    Just to the right of this there were blokes working.

    The coal stores and chutes...

    Thank you for some amazing pictures I am fortunate
    to have made a friend in the last year who has helped
    me in my research. He was an engineer man and boy
    at Carrongrove and he spent many years of his life in
    these buildings. With your permission I will save these
    and let him see them.

    John tells me that each week he used to have to calculate how much
    coal used then how much steam each department used
    the resulting figures told him how efficient the boilers were.

    Sorry folks I know it is not urban exloration but I love linking
    the past , the social side, community stuff to these fantastic
    pictures.

    At one time there were around 11 mills (not all paper) on the
    River Carron and Carrongrove, Herbertshire & Stoneywood
    employed around 600.

    see youtube carrongrove , Denny for more
    or flickr Carrongrove

    kind regards
