The Trottick Mill Ponds were built over 200 years ago to provide water for the Claverhouse Bleach Works - a finishing mill for linen production. Water from the Dighty Burn, which runs through Trottick Local Nature Reserve, was used to power a water wheel serving the linen mill. It was also used in the cleaning and drying processes of the factory.
