Description Dundee, Princes Street, Lower Dens Mills, Interior View of flax store showing compound trussed beam

Date 17/5/1978

Collection John R Hume

Catalogue Number SC 543412

Category On-line Digital Images

Scope and Content Lower Dens Mill, Dundee, Angus This flax-spinning mill was built by Baxter Brothers, and became part of one of the largest linen complexes in the world, supplying yarn to be woven and finished in the Upper Dens Factory, immediately to the north. This view shows an unusual compound-trussed beam in the detached flax store for Lower Dens Mill. The cast iron beam with its wrought-iron straining rods supports not only the wall above, but also the floor. The Dens complex, by that time in the ownership of Low and Bonar, was closed in 1978. Subsequently the 1850 Upper Dens Factory was converted into housing, and the Lower Dens Mill housed a range of small businesses. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
