Flour-mills and tan-pits

In past times flour-mills and tan-pits were the
chief means of affording work for the people ot’
Stockbridge. About 1814 a china manufactory
was started on a small scale on the Dean Bank
grounds, near where Saxe-Coburg Place stands
now. It proved a failure, but some pieces of the
” Stockbridge china” are still preserved in the
Industrial Museum (Now the National Museum of Scotland).
