Old Photograph Milton Mill Monifieth Scotland


Old photograph of Milton Mill by Monifieth near Dundee, Scotland. At Milton of Monifieth in the eighteenth century, a separate hamlet from what was then known as the Kirkton of Monifieth, there was linseed oil extraction mill. 1794 records show it as producing 800 bolls of oil, which apart from a few pints sold locally, were exported to London, Wngland. Another product from this operation was cattle feed, exported to Yorkshire farmers. There was also a `fulling` mill, thread mill, several tanneries all in business at Milton prior to 1845.
