Dundee, Halley’s Jute Mill (Wallace Craigie Works)
Built in 1835, Halley’s Mill (Wallace Craigie Works) was once a prestigious icon of the Dundee’s world-leading jute industry. At its height in the late 19th century, Dundee boasted around 60 jute mills and more than 50,000 workers were employed by Dundee’s jute industry, leading to the city being branded as ‘Juteopolis’. As one of the biggest mills in the city, Halley’s employed hundreds of people and outran many of its competitors to become the last working, independently-owned mill in the city. William Halley and Sons Ltd continued as a family firm based at Wallace Craigie Works until its closure in 2004, since which time the complex has been vacant. The building currently looks very dilapidated and it is on the Historic Scotland Buildings at Risk Register (HS Reference No 25132 LinkExternal link but plans have been put forward to transform it into 175 modern apartments (LinkExternal link STV) which will save the Mill facade, including the instantly recognisable gold lettering on red brick. It is a Category B listed building (LB25132 LinkExternal link Historic Scotland).
