The dawn of a new era began in 1983 for the historic mill site by the viaduct at Lower Largo. The caravan site which had occupied the site for three decades had been cleared and now work began on a new housing development - named 'Harbour Wynd' in the marketing literature shown above but ultimately to be known as Seatoun Place. The photograph below shows the early stages of the development works.
The marketing brochure plan (below) for the new development shows that there was originally to be a 'Phase 1' close to the viaduct and a 'Phase 2' set further back. However, only plots 1-8 ultimately came to fruition. With prices starting at £23,500 these beautifully situated dwellings would prove to be a great investment. Further below are two more images from the early building work, which exposed remains of the old mill. The former mill manager's house is seen in both images - the smaller white building with the grey roof. Tomorrow's post will feature the development in a more advanced stage of construction.
With thanks to John Band for the images and information.
