The silhouette of chimneys and the bold red brick buildings still give a feeling of the industrial past to the center of the city. The cotton girls wove wealth and prosperity and the factory owner grew pineapples. The Finlayson area is filled with stories and full of modern life. Today the old factory buildings hide inside restaurants, galleries, offices and even a ten screen cinema.
During this 1,5 hour walk you’ll hear interesting stories from the history and the presence of the city, see the Finlayson Palace and the old Stable Yards.
