SEAFIELD WORKS

Shepherds Loan, Taylor’s Lane

This jute carpet factory, founded c1850 for Thomson, Shepherd and Co by Robertson & Orchar,engineers, has a 5-storey spinning mill (dated 1861) with central double engine house adjoining a weaving shed built in 1859. Closed in 1986, it was converted to housing, with a swimming pool in the former press-packing/ mechanics’ shop. It has an arched cast iron roof, similar to that over the boiler house, now an open pergola.
