This vast site is a 19th century flax spinning mill; its decline in the latter half of the 20th century accompanied economic depression and social unrest in Belfast. During 'The Troubles' - considerable conflict took place around the Mill and as a consequence the building suffered hugely from vandalism and neglect.
The Maltings were built by Bass Breweries at the start of the 20th century and were the largest of their kind in the country. Some of the buildings still contain equipment of the former malting processes.
Dreamland lies in centre of Margate and was once the heart of the town's visitor appeal. It is the first fairground attraction in the UK to be listed and sits in a Conservation Area that includes a Grade II* listed cinema and Grade II listed menagerie cages.
The Castle has a long and complex history with origins in the late 11th century. In the Second World War - the site became unoccupied and the Castle Green House was declared unfit for human occupation in the 1980s. In 1984, part of the curtain wall collapsed.
Since 2009, we have been working to restore this vast industrial site for the benefit of Aberdeen. It is the largest collection of Category A Listed buildings at risk in Scotland. The earliest building (1808) is the oldest iron-frmaed mill in Scotland and the fourth oldest in the world.
