Before 1881?

"This picture shows Greenland Mill It was located on the Water of Leith, just downstream from the Dean Bridge, below the Randolph Crags.

As far as I am aware the mill was working up untill 1881, when a landslide destroyed the mill lade. The building looks reasonably well kept, so I would think that the picture must have been before 1881?

Family of Millers

"Our family have been millers back to at least the 1690's.

My Great grandfather, Gideon Walker, leased the mill at Greenland until the landslide blocked the lade. He then moved the business to Bells Mills.  His business continued there until the mill exploded in the late-1970s.

I have never been to the site of Greenland Mill so I don't know if there are any remains at all."
