Statement of Interest

Millfield, the mill owner's house, the adjacent gardener's and chauffeur's cottage and garage of Millfied Cottage (see separate listing), the mill manager's house at Garrionhurst (see separate listing) and two terraces of mill worker's cottages, formed the hamlet of Garrion overlooking 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 and it was he who built the hamlet as exists. 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. The grounds at Millfield show signs of earlier landscaping on the steep Clyde bank, now lost, such as covered trellised paths, arboretum and a terrace tennis court.
