Rosefield Mill
Rosefield Mill is an ornate Mill which stands opposite to Dock park, on the banks of the Nith. Although derelict it is beautiful. From RCAHMS

Rosefield Mill, built 1886-94 for Charteris Spence and Co., architect Alan Crombie. Two large 2-storey ranges of red-brick buildings, with single-storey workshops behind. The more ornate is a 3- by 22-bay block with machicolated corner towers and a central device. The other is a 9- by 34-bay structure with Italianate corner towers. Both have round-headed windows in the upper floors. There are 2 fine octagonal chimneys. Built as a tweed mill, now in multiple occupation.
