The Kirkcudbright creamery was opened on Friday October 21st 1921 and it closed in January 2010 with a major fire occurring in December 2011. It was owned latterly by Milk Link and cost 121 jobs with the average service being between 18 – 25 years at the creamery. It has recently been earmarked for demolition, with part of the site being used for housing. Opposition had been fierce against the plans by those who felt the site should be protected for industry but ultimately the housing plans went through. After hearing of this we decided to go for a walk around some of the remaining plant before demolition begins.
