Mark Watson is responsible for Industrial Heritage within Historic Environment Scotland’s conservation directorate. His 1990 book ‘Jute and Flax Mills in Dundee’ is the authoritative work on Dundee’s textile mill buildings. The walk begins at Verdant Works, a historic mill reused as a museum of the jute industry. Members are recommended to visit the museum beforehand and also make use of the museum café for lunch (other facilities nearby if busy).
The walk will take in other mills and associated buildings, finishing at Edward Street Mill, now the home of Verdant Spirit Co, a small craft gin distillery based in the mill’s 1895 engine house. Tastings.
