Virtual Heritage Walk: Ferguslie Mills

About Virtual Heritage Walk: Ferguslie Mills

Following on from our look at Paisley's textile industry on the 16th January, This virtual walk will look at the rise of the Fergulsie Mills in the west of the town. Dating to 1826 when James Coats established the first Cotton Mill on the site, the complex grew rapidly to become the largest thread mill site in Scotland if not the UK or the World.

Using privatly published works of the Coats family along with maps, and photographs we will take a brief look at the history of the site as we 'walk' around the surving buildings on the site.

Key details: Sat 23rd Jan 2021, 3pm on Zoom. Once registered an invite will be sent by email a day before the sessions.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Virtual Heritage Walk: Ferguslie Mills are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment. All information (whether in text or photographs) is given in good faith but should not be relied upon as being a statement of representation or fact.
