Old Photograph Powbank Mill Prestwick Scotland
Old photograph of Powbank Mill near Prestwick, Ayrshire, Scotland. Powbank Mill closed at the outbreak of World War II, when it was requisitioned as a Canteen. After the war, the mill never returned to the family, being the home of the Scottish Aviation Club, before they moved into the St Cuthbert's site on Kirk Street. The Pow Burn, Burn is a Scots word for stream or river, is fed by a small loch near the estate of Coodham and is narrow until it reaches Prestwick, where it starts to widen. The Burn separates Prestwick and Monkton. It crosses Prestwick Airport and flows through Prestwick Golf Course, where is serves as a natural obstacle. A caravan park has been built overlooking the mouth of the burn, where it flows into the Firth of Clyde. The Ayrshire Cycle Track and Ayrshire Coastal Path cross over the burn by a bridge not far from the estuary.
