Bon Accord Free Church
Rosemount Viaduct, AB25 1NS Aberdeen
Celebrating some of Aberdeen's industrial heritage. Beginning in Rosemount, we drop down to the lost artisan street of Hardweird at the foot of Jack's Brae where several different mill workings were based. Then, we pass the iconic art deco Rosemount Square, once the site of a jam factory which has links with a London-based football team!

Down into Gilcomston, there are many sites to investigate including Broadfords and the various mills, distillery and brewery which made use of the streams which originally fed the old loch of Aberdeen. We then focus on Hutcheon Street and the Gallowgate, which include the Combworks, the Porthill Factory, and the McKinnon Ironworks of Spring Garden. We round off with one of the most weel-kent local factories, «Soapy» Ogston's on Gallowgate

A must for industrial history fans! A fairly strenuous walk, wear sensible shoes!

Meets outside Bon-Accord Free Church
Ends: The Soap Factory, Gallowgate
