Cawdor Mill, looking down Thynne Street
Cawdor Mill, looking down Thynne Street
A mill from the latter half of the 19th century (it was certainly working by 1884 when a storeroom was burnt out).
The corner of the building in the foreground is the base of the chimney, with the former boiler house to its left. Down Thynne Street, the first section of the building with the pair of rounded windows was the engine house, with the mill itself beyond. It's not clear whether any parts of the mill were ever taller than the current two storeys.
