View of Rosefield Mills from Dock Park
This imposing building beside the River Nith was part of a large tweed mill, in 1906 over 700 people were employed here (history of tweed manufacturing in Nithsdale - see Future Museum LinkExternal link ).
Production changed to military cloth during the First World War, after which the company failed to compete in the new markets and did not survive the Depression (see Dumfries Museum LinkExternal link ).
The site passed into multiple occupation, the main building has been deteriorating over a number of years and appears to be unoccupied - see NX9775 : Rosefield Mills - a building at risk .
Aerial photos showing the extent of the mill in 1928 can be seen on Canmore LinkExternal link
