The National Trust for Scotland is appealing for memories of Preston Mill in East Lothian, which is about to benefit from a refurbishment and brand new exhibition.
Rhiannon Naismith, property manager of Preston Mill in East Lothian is calling for stories and memories relating to the historic mill. Preston Mill is currently undergoing a refurbishment which is due to be completed in May 2012. The mill will benefit from a brand new exhibition, shop and refreshment area, and there will also be scope for outdoor trails and interactive displays.
Rhiannon said: 'This is an exciting project to bring Preston Mill to life for visitors, to improve the facilities and tell the fascinating story of this beautiful place which has played such an important part in East Linton’s life over the centuries. We are really keen to hear from local people who might know old stories about the mill, have old pictures or even unusual milling artefacts that they’d be willing to share with the people of Scotland who come to explore the area’s proud heritage.'
