Cromarty - Hemp Works
Cromarty - Hemp Works
These buildings, situated in Cromarty on the shore of the Cromarty Firth, were originally part of the Hemp works built by George Ross in 1773. This was probably the first "factory" in the UK. Hemp from Russia arrived on sailing ships and was spun into hemp thread and transported to London for use in sack making.
