    Once again a bit late here, it's a lovely solidly built mill but has been virtually stripped bare ready for a conversion that has as of yet not happened.

    I was hoping for some epic hiding in cubbies, and indeed there were a few little hidey holes, but the epic was a tad lacking, all I found were some bundles of raw jute and a few very old wooden rollers from the looms. There was even a blocked up staircase, but all this yielded were a few old paint tins and a 50's newspaper :( Still I'm glad I got to have a poke around before it gets flattened or converted.

    Clebby, I told you to wait in the car ;)

    There was a whole stack of these rollers hiding in a stone alcove, obviously once for winding sheet jute into rolls

    A bit of "raw" jute prior to spinning. Plucked from a bale buried in rubble in the shut off staircase.

    A couple of little relics there. That floor looks Barnsley-esque... very photogenic.

    Aye I was hoping for a little bit more but even in it's current state I would say it is worth a gentle wander. Shame I missed it pre stripping really, I think it is the last sizeable jute mill in Dundee that is left unconverted, other than Baxters.

    Yeah I think we had more promising things on our list last time. To be fair to the place it had potential to be hiding a few gems, just a pity they hid paint tins instead of cone tops!

    Horror shots? 'horrific shots' maybe. Still, looks like you were having fun.
