Scope and Content Stanley Mills, Stanley, Perthshire This large complex was founded in 1785 to spin cotton using Sir Richard Arkwright's patented system. Arkwright was one of the partners in the company. Eventually there were three mills, with ancillary buildings, and a factory village. This view shows the oldest mill, the Bell Mill, built to Arkwright's design. In 1977 it was only used for storage. It was acquired in the mid 1990s by Historic Scotland, and has been thoroughly repaired. The mills were in 1977 the property of Sidlaw Industries, and spun cotton and wove into belting and into endless tapes used in cigarette manufacture. It closed c 1980. The other two mills have been converted to flats by the Phoenix Trust. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
