Mill reservoir
Mill reservoir
This sign marks the last of the reservoirs (voes) which were constructed to store water from the R. Ayr to power the waterwheels in the cotton mills in Catrine. There was both a waulk mill and a twist mill and a bleach works, all of which made heavy demands on water. The water to the latter mill was led along an aqueduct, over the main street in Catrine to the mill which was located in the centre of the village.
