Verdant Works

Verdant Works is a tale of two cities – both of them Dundee.

For some it was long working hours, poor pay and ill health. For others it was a city of opportunity and wealth. Travel back over 100 years to an era when jute was king. 

By the time the High Mill of Verdant Works was built in 1833 Britain’s Industrial Revolution was reaching its climax. England’s ‘dark satanic mills’ were in full production, and in Scotland fortunes were being made and then multiplied a hundred fold. Towards the end of the Victorian era Scotland was producing a third of Britain’s railway engines, a third of its steel, a third of Britain’s ships and half of its engines. It is against this historical backdrop that the incredible story of jute in Dundee was played out.
