Attraction Information

Stanley Mills is a well preserved relic of the Industrial Revolution where you can learn about the textiles that were produced here for 200 years.
The site of the mills allowed them to harness the massive waterpower at a hairpin bend of the river Tay. Initially the mills were powered by water wheel but as time passed, this changed to water powered turbines that generated electricity.
At the visitor centre, you can find out about the lives of the people who worked here and how things changed during this time of new technology and innovation.
There are some great interactive displays that give you the chance to discover if your fingers are as nimble as a child labourer's had to be or if you are tough enough to make a profit at the mill. There is also a model where you can change how the water flows and see the effects.
A really interesting place to visit with welcoming members of staff.
