This morning I inspected the site of a former paper mill and dam on the White Cart Water close to Clarkston, Glasgow.

Paper making in the area commenced in the late 17th century by a Frenchman, Nicholas Deschan whose descendants built the mill at Netherlee which is the site covered by the still and video images below.

The images show overgrown ruins with the video focusing on the site of a former dam which was used to generate water power for the mill.

Overall, a very interesting site with linkage to the industrial revolution with which Glasgow was closely associated.

It would be nice if the local Council or other appropriate authority provided information boards for this and other industrial sites along the river side.
