This evening, I am posting a short video of a piece of Paisley’s industrial history.

The video clip shows an image of the former Clark’s Threadmill (1924) located on the White Carte Water.During the late 19th and early 20th centuries Paisley’s prosperity depended on the thread mills of the Coats and Clark families which employed many thousands of local people,

The Clark’s Mill became derelict after the collapse of the thread-making industry but the building has since been restored as a combined residential and business accommodation.
