NS5337 : Former lace mill

near to Newmilns, East Ayrshire, Great Britain

Former lace mill.
Former lace mill.
"Hood Morton & Co Ltd Lace & Madras Manufacturers". The Irvine valley (Darvel, Newmilns, Galston and Kilmarnock) is the last home of Nottingham lace manufacture in the UK (perhaps in Europe). Sadly this mill has closed in the last few years. Note the manufacture of 'Madras' - a sort of three-dimensional lace. There is still a single world manufacturer of this very expensive cloth, and they are further along this same valley.
