Statement of Interest

Site of former bleaching green and indicated as such on

1822 map. Vignette on 18th century topographical drawing

shows buildings with water wheel on site, probably a

former laundry or bleaching house, the wheel to activate

washing. This building and bleaching may have served also

for bleaching of local woven fabric made from locally

grown flax.

The building marked on the bleaching green site appears

to correspond with present 'Old Laundry'.

William Robertson known to have been working in Cullen

in early 1820's for Seafield Estate.
