Although other works, such as spinning and slit mills used the water power of the Kelvin, it was grain mills which predominated.Large scale industrial flour milling began with the opening of the Scotstoun Mills in the 1840s, though as the Kelvin provided such cheap and efficient power, these were still water-operated, and remained so till the later expansion in the nineteenth century.Along Beith Street are renovated sandstone tenements and some fine new flats, but the most interesting building is the former Partick Fire Station, dating from 1906.This too has been converted to housing though the brick fire tower has been retained as a feature.And where today survives the city's last grain mill.This is owned by Rank Hovis and produces flour for their Duke Street bakery.

Now flats this cameo was built in the 1830s on the site of the original Bishop's Mill, and has delightful wheatsheaf motifs carved on its gables.A century ago, most Glasgow folk would still have known that a girnal was a grain chest and that Partick was the area where was landed and processed most of the city's grain.Partick's western border with the city was the River Kelvin, which falls steeply to the Clyde, and which powered the early granaries along its banks.The Regent Flour mills were built across the Kelvin from the Scotstoun mill in the 1890s.Owned by the SCWS from 1903, this mill made the famous Lofty Peak flour. This cluster of mills large and small made it logical for the Clyde Navigation Trust to establish its grain depot at Meadowside in Partick in the early 1900s, and until very recently the origin of most material for Glasgow's ubiquitous jeely peece was in the girnals of Partick.
