Statement of Interest

Founded in 1825, J and D Paton's Woollen Mill was one of eight established beside the Tillicoultry Burn. By 1987 it was one of only four surviving buildings, and the last still producing knitwear. The production of fine shawls, tartans and tweeds won Patons a Gold Medal in the 1851 Great Exhibition.
