Kirkcaldy Museum and District, Scotland

  KIRKCALDY MUSEUM & DISTRICT.  Kirkcaldy was once Scotlandís biggest port after Leith and it is now home to Scotlandís only surviving Linen Manufacturer.  Kirkcaldy was once home to no fewer than 11 linen mills, with the sole remaining mill located on St Clair Street.

   The town began as a burgh under the control of Dunfermline Abbey. Kirkcaldy harbour was acknowledged for having "a sheltered cove round the East Burn", thus giving easy accessibility for boats. By the early 16th century the vessels of the harbour had begun to engage in trade with the Baltic; later dealing with the import of grain in 1618 and continental beer in 1625. A shipbuilding trade also existed on the site until this was phased out temporarily in 1645. The success led to the growth of the burgh, surrounding the harbour, Main Street and Tiel (West) burn. As Kirkcaldy entered into the 19th century, the arrival of the Kirkcaldy and District Railway, later to become part of the North British Railway, saw the town develop into the industrial heart of Fifeóreviving the use of Kirkcaldy port, which had a severe setback during the midĖ17th century. The harbour was catering for the growing trade of imports of flax, timber and hemp and exports of coal, salt and linen cloth, when a decision was made to build a new wet dock and pier from 1843Ė46.

    Bennochy Works (linen), Abbotshall Road, Kirkcaldy, Fife This was a medium-sized flax-spinning mill, built in 1865 to a design similar to that of contemporary Dundee textile mills. It supplied linen yarn to several weaving factories in Kirkcaldy and the surrounding area. This shows the main goods entrance to the works. Behind the gate is the warehouse for raw flax. Note the use of cannon as protection for the gate piers from the iron hubs of cart wheels, and the bracketed lamp, signs of an intention to impress. This was one of two flax-spinning mills in this part of Kirkcaldy, both modelled on Dundee practice. The Kirkcaldy and district linen trade produced finer goods than was common in the Dundee area.
