The McCains food factory - site of the Washdyke linen mill

Not selected for Google Earth or Google Maps [?]

On this site, the concrete structure comprising the retting tanks and boiler house survived up to 20 years ago (1990? ish)

The plan to demolish it in a wek or so was unrealistic and 4 weeks after commencing work, much of the lower structure still remained. What was uneconomic to continue to demolish was encased in a concrete sarcophagus and incorporated into the building where it remains as an enigmatic inaccessible space.
