Historical Background
 
'The Cluny Warehouse was built as ‘The Northumberland Flax Mill' in 1848, to the design of John Dobson for the firm of Plummer & Cooke. Originally steam powered, the adjacent free-standing, truncated but recently restored chimney formed part of the complex. Its life as a flax mill was short, and the building became a Whisky store; it is now better known as the Cluny Warehouse. It was internally divided into work units and a music venue and bar.'
[Stafford Linsley's annotation]
