  • Admiring the beautiful view at my adopted home of Neilston. A bright, sunny and crispy-cold November Autumn day hanging out with friends. A little stroll through a field and sneaking a peek at the former Crofthead mill out there in the distance. Mysterious, murky and mesmerising. .
.
Established 1792 by Stewart, Orr & Co. In 1859, on the death of James Orr, combined with R J & F Alexander of Duke St Glasgow, to amalgamate in 1898 with English Sewing Ltd (descendents of Richard Arkwright, Masson and Belper, Derbyshire) as a thread twisting mill. The original mill, the largest in the district, and comparable to Cartside Mill, was burned down twice, once shortly after construction, and again in 1880. Later post cards show a cut down part of it surviving, with a later clock tower. The site is now a car park. The architect of No 1 Mill was probably either A H or Joseph Stott, Edward Potts or John Wild, all of Oldham and designers of cotton mills world-wide. In Scotland the only comparable buildings are the Glasgow Cotton Spinners remaining mill at Carstairs Street, Glasgow and the more unusual Anchor and Ferguslie Mills, Paisley. Originally water powered, supplemented by steam engines in 1870s, a steam turbine in 1928 and individual electric drives in 1953. A Pirn mill was added to the South in about 1900 to make bobbins, closed and demolished in 1968, leaving only the gates and railings. (Historic Environment Scotland).

  • Southern Industries Mill (Abandoned) - Clover, SC
.
When the Southern Industries Mill closed its doors in 2007, it had been open for 84 years and had been a mainstay in Clover, SC for all those years. When it was first built in 1923, it was part of the Hampton Spinning Mill. Cotton and all things related to cotton were a foundation in the South.
.
Cotton goes through a lot of processes before it becomes that favorite shirt or those soft sheets. And passing through a spinning mill is part of that process. Spinning mills are were the strands of cotton fiber are twisted together to form yarn. .
Later in the mill became part of the American Thread Company before it finally joint Southern Industries. .
For the past 12 years, the mill has sat vacant on Main Street. Questions have been raised about the mill being part of a brownfield, questions have been raised about a future transformation into lofts or shops or offices, questions have been raised about tearing the mill down. But there it sits on Main Street.
