Freuchie, Eden Valley Row, Former Eden Valley Linen Works Including Gate Piers And Boundary Walls


Probably by Robertson & Orchar, circa 1864. 2-storey, 16-bay former linen works. Long, ordered elevation with regular fenestration broken by 2 segmentally arched cart entrances. Squared and snecked stugged sandstone with rusticated ashlar masonry to quoins, arched cart entrance surrounds and vertical margins which define the first and last 3 bays. Flush droved long and short surrounds to windows. Ashlar eaves course and cornice. Further sandstone rubble buildings attached to rear. ...

Statement of special interest

In use as a Linen Works until around the time of the Second World War. Recently used as a mushroom factory. Important as a reminder of the once prominent linen industry in Fife and notable for its little altered principal elevation. ...
