About this event

We are delighted to be hosted by the Carluke Development Trust team at Carluke High Mill for a day of presentations, networking and tours of the site.

Our focus for the day will be a look at activities that organisations can undertake whilst they are progressing towards a heritage regeneration project. In particular, we will hear about meanwhile uses and growing schemes at High Mill, where current uses include a Men’s Shed, Food Bank and activities with the local school children, under the banner of ONECarluke Growing & Learning Garden. We will hear from a range of speakers from the High Mill project in a marquee on site, whilst lunch will be served in the neighbouring Bowling Club (also our back-up venue available in case of bad weather!) before getting the full site tour. There may be a selection of home-grown goodies available for sale, so be sure to bring some cash!

Background:

Carluke High Mill was built in 1801 in Carluke town centre. As the most complete windmill in Scotland, it is a Category A listed building, but has been derelict for more than 20 years. Through a series of “Carluke Conversations” the community developed their vision for the site as a heritage tourism destination which also meets the needs of the town’s residents. Carluke Development Trust took ownership of the site in 2018. The site surrounding the building is being developed as a community growing and learning garden, with space for the community food hub and outdoor classrooms which will be used by the nearby schools. The building itself will deliver indoor community facilities and rentable high-end events space along with the heritage attractions in the mill tower itself.
