    Visited with OT, Snappel and Turkey.

    The Queen Victoria works has had a long and interesting history. Some of this has been revealed by a tatty old book I found in another smallscale Scotland Jute mill.

    The front office building looks odd to be the admin for a mill... it was in fact a public house at one point in time, and the mill kind of spilled over into it! Sadly it is littl more tahn a burned out shell now, and I would think beyond saving...


    The mill began it's life as Lower Pleasance mill, changing it's name in the hype of the Queen's diamond Jubilee in the 1880's. It is of typical construction, with huge wooden roofed weaving sheds. With the lead missing from the troughs at the bottom of the eaves, the water has rotted these great roofs, and many are now lying on the floor... this makes exploring the mill both interesting and dangerous!

    Decay, water damage and a whole lot of vandalish have left the works in a right old state, but the detail is there to be found if one will take the time to look...

    I was uptairs in the offices, and noticed what appeared to be a pill box on the roof of the stone built shed. With a bit of exploration we found it, and sure enough it is of pill box construction, prob a fire watcher's post. A nice remnant from wartime...

    Sounds about right to me, I swear that's all they ever want to do these days.
