Remains of Low Mill, Valleyfield Penicuik
Remains of Low Mill, Valleyfield Penicuik
A plaque fixed to the corner of the old wall informs that once the Low Mill, part of the Valleyfield Mill complex, stood here. Papermaking began on the site in 1709 and the Cowan family ran the business from 1779 until closure in 1975.

The 6" OS map of 1905 (Edinburghshire sheet XIII.NE) shows that this area including Valleyfield Mill upstream was once a large industrial complex with its own railway network. Now the mill sites at Valleyfield, Eskbridge and Dalmore have become housing areas, almost small villages in their own right.
