I had relatives who lived at “Lint Mill” in Ancrum. One source says “Lint Mill Cottage”. I have found only a small amount of information about the Ancrum Lint Mill and Bleach Field in a very old Border Society magazine online. I’m interested in learning more about the Lint Mill and Lint industry in Ancrum – when did it go out of operation; were there cottages for workers, are there any remains of the industry in Ancrum, etc.
Lintmill is just West of Ancrum between Caslte Hill and the old Burial Ground - there are still buildings there but I don't know if any are occupied or just ruins - they are still on Google Maps. As far as I can see on an old 1860 map of Roxburghshire there were three mill cottages beside the mill. I will Email you seperately
