Britain By Car - A Motoring History


A small village, situated two and a half miles northeast of Dumfries. During the 19th and early 20th centuries, distinctive red sandstone was extracted from a number of local quarries.  It was used for buildings in nearby Dumfries, in cities such as Glasgow and Edinburgh, and even to create the steps of the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbour.

A unique British factory, and the final location of a once major British motor manufacturer.
