Old Photograph Crookston Scotland


Old photograph of cottages and Mill in Crookston, Glasgow, Scotland. This is a residential suburb on the south western edge of the city of Glasgow. Formerly a village in its own right, Crookston, and its surrounding lands, were named after the feudal Norman lord, Robert Croc, who was given the Levern valley in Renfrewshire by King David I of Scotland in 1170. The mill seen in the background was built in 1748 and was still in use in 1935. It was said to be the oldest water wheel mill in Scotland, possessing a wheel 30 feet in diameter.
