    The historic Paton’s Mill is an A-listed building. The six-storey mill, with its white facade, is currently empty, but there have been suggestions on it being converted into a industrial museum or 79 flats. The Old Mill section of the huge factory dates back to 1782 and is thought to be the first machine factory in the world. The mill in High Street was opened originally as a cotton-spinning factory but was later used for lace manufacture.
    Built by the Corse and Burns Company, it predates by four years the New Lanark cotton-mill which was founded by David Dale, the Stewarton-born industrialist who was apprenticed to a weaver in Paisley. Paton's took over the mill in 1896 when their first factory in Clark Street was destroyed by fire.

    News paper artical - Historic mill is falling to pieces.

    It is very sad to see how much this place has gone down hill since the beginning of the year.
    Looking at other peoples reports you can clearly see it deteriorating and i don't think it will be long before the place gets burnt down by neds.
