Bishop Mills (Corn) [NAT]

OS 1:1250 map, 1975.

Bishop Mills, 206 Old Dumbarton Road, rebuilt 1839 and c. 1853 for William Wilson, miller and grain merchant. A four-storey, 2- by 10-bay coursed rubble building with wheatsheaves at the apices of the gables. There is a brick wheel house, now empty, on the S end. A four-storey four-bay brick building was added later, and is linked to the older building by covered gangways.

Originally powered by a waterwheel, a turbine was used until the early 1950's, with steam, gas and petrol auxiliary power at various times. The mill is now electrified.

Converted to residential use 1986-87
