Rosefield Mills is one of the most remarkable buildings in Dumfries. It is the last of the great woollen mills that once lined the Nith and occupies a significant place in Dumfries’ identity and heritage, but has been badly neglected for too long.

Rosefield Mills Project

In March 2017, Dumfries Historic Buildings Trust (DHBT) assembled a volunteer group to try to buy, restore, and bring this iconic building back to life for the benefit of the community.

The aims of the Project are:

  • To purchase, restore and re-open Rosefield Mills.
  • Find a new, sustainable and meaningful life for it, for the benefit of the Dumfries Community.
  • To make Rosefield Mills a building Dumfries can be proud of.
