Inverbervie in Aberdeenshire

  INVERBERVIE in Aberdeenshire.

    Inverbervie is a Flax Town of Scotland to the north of Montrose. A Royal Burgh from early days, A small harbour in the town was important in early years but despite improvements by Thomas Telford in 1819, it disappeared by 1830 owing to the build up of the shingle bar at the mouth of the river Bervie. “The first flax spinning mill in Scotland was established here at the Haughs around 1790 and by 1910 there were nine in operation with 500-600 workers. As over 2,500 around the turn of the 20th Century but has since declined owing the downturn in that industry.” The first water powered flax mill in Scotland. Just to the south is the small town of Gourdon which boasted the last working flax mill in 1997.
