Scope and Content Waterside Iron Works, Dalmellington, East Ayrshire These workshops were built in 1847 by the Dalmellington Iron Company for maintaining their plant, including the locomotives working on their internal railway system. The iron works closed in 1921, but the workshops were retained to service locomotives until 1979, when the last pit in the Doon Valley closed. This shows the blacksmith's hearth in the smithy of the works. This is of quite a late date, with its sheet-iron construction, and it is also quite large. On the left is part of the anvil. The coal interests of the Dalmellington Iron Co became part of Bairds & Dalmellington Ltd in 1931, which was nationalised in 1947. After the end of mining locally, the site, including these workshops, was taken over as a museum by the Dalmellington & District Conservation Trust. Source: RCAHMS contribution to SCRAN.
