Forgotten Victorian Garden & Gunpowder Works(1889) - Camility Mill, West Calder [06:26]
*update actually built in 1889* Hidden beneath the over grown grass lays an old Victorian Ornimental Water Garden and Gunpowder Works built in 1889, at the back of West Calder. The garden was so cool, reminds me of the "Secret Garden", I love that film so much! I fell down the hill trying to get here as you can tell by my jeans lol These are both next to each other so I've just made into one video. First the Garden then the gunpower works. Copied Article 1: The works was set up in 1889 to produce gunpowder which was extensively used in the mining industry. Some of the gunpowder was brought by horse and cart to West Calder Co-op, where it was sold over the counter in 1lb or 2lb bags and often stored by miners under the bed. "It's a part of West Lothian's history that's been forgotten," says Sybil Cavanagh, the Local History Librarian. "When I started researching the works, I just had a hazy idea of a small, rural mill. "In fact, it was a big employer of labour and an extensive site." After searching through the files of old newspapers held in the Local History Library and in the National Archives of Scotland, she's pieced together the whole story. The booklet recalls the strange working conditions and the many safety rules which had to be observed, from not being allowed turn-ups on your trousers to vacating the premises in a thunderstorm. The booklet also records the names of some 150 workers, and recalls in detail the two major explosions, in which two workers were ...
Abandoned 1800's Victorian Dairy Farm - "Keir Home Farm" - Dunblane, Scotland [05:14]
Large ½ storey U-plan farm complex enclosing an extensive central cattle court. The farm was remodelled with elaborate additions by Sir William Stirling-Maxwell between 1856 and 1861. A tall 3 storey clocktower in snecked rubble with ashlar dressings sits at the south east angle, and displays bold Renaissance details although it has now lost its clockfaces. The former dairy has lost its Minton-style pictorial tiles that once decorated the full height of its 4 walls.

Abandoned 1900's "Cammo Farmhouse" - Edinburgh, Scotland [05:31]
Victorian farmhouse. dated 1908. Currently being reviewed for demolition so I thought it was important to get some footage before it's gone, although there's not much inside. it was originally a golf club and was converted to a farmhouse in the 1950's. Dated 1908 Architects: Bailey Scott Murphy and David Morton Kinross Some information from "scotland at risk register": A-symmetrical, L-plan half-timbered golf club converted to farmhouse circa 1953. Single and 2-storey, 6-bay with 2-storey, 2-bay projecting wing to outer left; recessed 2-storey, single bay wing in penultimate bay to outer left. Whitewashed harl; painted red brick base course; red clay tile roof swept at eaves; timbered gableheads; overhanging eaves. Rendered single storey outbuilding to outer right; red brick pitched roof ruin at front facing E. Originally Cramond Brig Golf Club comprising dining room, smoking room, changing quarters, a clubmaster's parlour, servery, kitchen and separate entries for males and females. Despite its present state of disrepair, Cammo Home Farm retains architectural interest through its Arts and Crafts detailing - note the overhanging eaves, large stacks, timber details beneath gables and sense of rambling a-symmetry. Neither Bailey Scott Murphy (b 1876) nor David Morton Kinross (nephew of John Kinross) were architects of prolific output. The former's interest lay primarily in metalwork, publishing ENGLISH AND SCOTTISH WROUGHT IRONWORK, (1904), with 72 collotype photographs and ...
