COMMUNITY OWNERSHIP OF CARLUKE HIGH MILL

30+ YEARS IN THE MAKING

Carluke Development Trust (CDT), has this week taken into community ownership, the Carluke High Mill. The site comprises of the A-listed High Mill built in the 18th Century, which is the most complete windmill of its type in existence in Scotland, and a former market garden extending to 1.2 acres.


Community ownership of the site has been made possible by a grant from the Scottish Land Fund, a contribution from the public donations gathered by the Carluke High Mill Steering Group, and a generous donation of the Mill machinery from the previous owner of the site; Mr James Stevenson-Hamilton.
Tom Sneddon, Chair of Carluke Development Trust, explained:


“Carluke Development Trust and our partner the Carluke High Mill Development Group (who have been involved in this process for a number of years), are absolutely thrilled to have completed the process of bringing this important historic site into Community Ownership.


The work has only just begun and we and our partners are committed to developing the land to create a community green space that will provide new training, employment and volunteering opportunities and the longer term aim of bringing the Mill buildings back into a working state.


Tom also explained that the Trust had as part of last year’s Carluke Conversation sought the views of Carluke’s communities, who had responded with an 90%+ approval for the purchase of the site and creation of a community owned greenspace.


CDT will in the next month begin the 2nd Carluke Conversation that will seek the views, thoughts and ideas of Carluke’s communities on the ongoing use of the site in particular how would these communities see the development of the Mill and building.


Let's develop Carluke's National Treasure together and look out for Carluke Conversation 2, we want your thoughts on a way forward for the Mill and on other issues related to the town, so please get involved.

 

Carluke Development Trust (SC196197) are looking to listen and engage with residents of the Parish of Carluke (including: Carluke, Law, Braidwood, Crossford and Kilncadzow) to gather their views, opinions, thoughts and aspirations for the future development and improvement of The Parish of Carluke.

 

Have your voice, comments and views heard and help us shape the Parish of Carluke's future.

Many thanks to Marco Biagi MSP and Aileen Campbell MSP for visiting the Mill today. We appreciate your interest in our community projects.

Over the past couple of months work has been carried out on the tower section of the High Mill to make sure there will be no further collapse or deterioration of the structure. Loose stones have been removed and the facades repointed and strengthened by a steel brace - which might not be pretty but hopefully will do the job.

This work has been paid for through an 'Ancient Monuments Grant' from Historic Scotland and gives the Trust time to raise the money required to further advance the project.

Have you noticed the amazing colour at the railway station? The photographs are a little reminder.

The new planting with additional filled containers has been co-ordinated by Andy McLatchie, a volunteer Trust Director, supplied and maintained by Rosebank Garden Centre and paid for through the 'adopt a station' programme by Scotrail.
