Seedhill

A central district of Paisley in Renfrewshire, Seedhill takes its name from an ancient street of the same name but now extends east between Seedhill Road and the right bank of the White Cart Water. The Seedhill Craigs are a prominent rock shelf which cuts across this river.

By the mid 19th C., this was an industrial area, with a shawl factory here and Seedhill Mills, which later became the Anchor Mills, produced thread. There was also a flour mill and a tannery here. Much of the area has been redeveloped and modern brick-built townhouses and blocks of flats now existing alongside the preserved brick-built mill buildings, most of which have been converted to residential use.
