FUNDING is being sought to stabilise Carluke’s historic High Mill, according to the steering group set up to bring it back to its former glory.
The High Mill Steering Group, formed by Carluke Development Trust, released a statement to the Gazette following a meeting of the group.
It said: “Recommendations have been put forward for potential funding sources to help stabilise the structure in the short term, while negotiations are taking place regarding access to the land for more permanent repairs and development.
“Carluke Development Trust is taking a lead in completing funding applications for this work, in partnership with the Strathclyde Building and Preservation Trust.”
The partial collapse of High Mill last month saw an unprecedented level of interest in the 300-year-old structure – many people were concerned time was running out to save it.
Steering group members are hopeful that a public meeting will be called in April with an architect present to discuss the various options available.
