Paisley S.W.Scotland

Sunday, May 17, 2009

This evening (Sunday), I visited the historic town of Paisley, S.W.Scotland which sits astride the White Cart Water (river) and where the 800 year old, medieval Abbey dominates the central area.

Paisley achived fame in the 19th and 20th centuries on back of boming textile industry which grew out of intricately patterned Kashmir shawls imported by the East India Company. Sadly this textile and thread industry dominated by the Clark and Coats families has largely disappeared but tangible evidence remains as manifested in the former mill buildings and grand Town Hall.

The video clip below, taken this evening in overcast conditions, captures the Abbey, Town Hall and central area of Paisley.
