Annan Harbour
Annan Harbour
Annan Harbourís once thriving past hails from the end of the 18th century when the first building was erected.

Douglas Sibson & Co excavated and built the mill lade through merse ground belonging to the burgh and constructed a large building in Port Street, south of the railway line, for use as a brewery in 1785.

It was used as a cotton factory but a few years later a brewery sprang up nearby. In time more warehouses and buildings appeared, with the southern portion of the lade widened occasionally to keep up with the development.

Records show that in 1810 the burgh built a quay a 100 feet long at the southern end Port Street and a further extension was made later.

In 1897 the quay was again extended southwards and the lade was also widened and deepened, forming the harbour.
