Verdant Works and the High Mill - Dundee's industrial heritage

This afternoon, along with a representative of Dundee Heritage Trust, I had a tour of the parts of Verdant Works  and the High Mill that have not, as yet, been restored and, left in their current state, are under threat.

As the photos below indicate, these areas of the mill are a stunning representation of Dundee's industrial past.    There has been interest shown by Historic Scotland and we discussed possible options.   It will be a challenge to secure a positive solution but it is absolutely worth progressing.   To see the neglect and decay of nearby Queen Victoria Works, it reminds us of the need to preserve our city's historical heritage.
