Statement of Interest

Originally the mill manager's house with attached mill workers cottages (heavily modified). Garrionhurst overlooks the site of where Garrion mill once stood. A mill operated on this site since the medieval period when it was run by the monks of Kelso in relation to the Bishop of Glasgow's summer residence at Garrion Tower (see separate listing). By the late nineteenth the mill operation was run by John Lee Brown who built the hamlet as exists today including Garrion and Mill cottages for mill workers, Garrionhurst and his own residence of Millfield with combined garage, chauffeur's and gardener's cottage (see separate listings). The mill was run by Lee from 1880 to 1918 when it was sold to a Mr MacGregor and was in use until the 1960s.
