Gourock Ropeworks Building
Gourock Ropeworks Building
Located on Bay Street, known locally simply as "The Mill". Now being converted to flats after thirty years of neglect and debate about its future. Options ranged from hotel and shopping complex to demolition and house building. Thankfully, this historic building has been saved. It started life as a sugar refinery in 1866 and was later converted to a ropeworks.
