Scope and Content Waulk Mill, Kirkcowan, Wigtownshire Like the nearby Tarff Mills, this was a small rural woollen mill, in this case an 18th century foundation, the building seen here being enlarged in 1821 and in 1835. This mill was water powered, but weaving sheds added in the 1880s were steam powered. This view shows the spinning mill, with the extension of 1835 on the right, the different masonry starting to the right of the nearer patch of ivy. This mill continued to work until the 1960s, latterly in the hands of the Cree Mills Co of Newton Stewart. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
