    Default Old Joiners Workshop


    Ok so this is not quite Industrial, but it was a joiners workshop.
    I've known about this place for nearly 25years but never had the need to document it before.
    In a tiny village near arbroath lies this derelict house and attached workshop.
    When I first visited this place the house and wrokshop were in good condition, the house was still semi furnished and a car was in the garage next door, Outside the workshop in the yard was an old diesel engine driving a belt driven rip saw, this has been stolen leaving jus the saw.
    Inside the workshop were all the tools of the trade massive band saw, table saw and others all belt driven from another engine at the back of the shop.
    All that remains of this wonderful workshop is the beds for the engines, some line shafts and belts and the band saw.

    It's an interesting wee place, there was a Wadkin milling machine in there, and a Morris Minor hubcap amongst all the rubbish. Shame it's been left to rot away…

    Hi, welcome to the forum.

    We prefer photographs to be included in report posts or a selection with a link to the album if there are a lot of pictures. :) I've added them for you this time since you're local. ;)

    Hi Wolfism,
    Even since my last walk up that way last year a lot had been stollen, hopefully for restoration or put in a museum.
    There is an old meal mill near by and I might still have the pics, so watch this space.
    Are you local to fife or angus?????
