Russian Flax and Hemp Bale Seals from

Gateside in Fife

 

 

 GATESIDE, FIFE.  Gateside Bobbin Mill is to be found to the east of village, signed from A91.

      Founded for flax spinning in 1805, it became a bobbin mill for the Gateside Mill Co in the later 19th century. Rebuilt in brick in 1949 after a fire, the mill is signalled by the chimney stalk, one of the very few surviving to their full height with their cornice intact. This served a Lancashire boiler.
     The ground floor of the mill is where bobbins were made, and the first floor was for shuttles. Now it contains a number of craft workshops, and a tea room. The wheel had been replaced by a turbine, now missing, but its sluice exists just outside the mill. Other buildings include a detached brick building with ventilator slots for seasoning timber, a stretch of former railway line bridging the River Eden and older stone buildings that had escaped the fire.
