Welcome to the Strathaven Town Mill
ARTS AND HERITAGE CENTRE
To give the Town Mill back to the community of Strathaven and the surrounding area by offering rooms and halls for hire for events and exhibitions as well as promoting a wide range of events organized by our members.
The Town Mill was built in the 17th century in the shadow of Strathaven Castle, another well known historic landmark. Known throughout the county for years as a focal point for community gatherings and particularly musical clubs and groups, It has had many uses throughout its life, even housing the local tourist information office for a short time.
The Arts and Heritage Centre was set up to bring back the good times to the Town Mill and reinstate it to its pomp as the local venue for the arts and local culture. Over the years we have made huge steps toward our goals, and continue to be committed to the the cause.

Sunshine on Leith at Strathaven Town Mill
Dexter Fletcher directs Sunshine on Leith; a jubilant, heartfelt musical about the power of home, the hearth, family and love. It is the tale of one tight-knit family, and the three couples bound to it, as they experience the joys and heartache that punctuate all relationships. And they do it all while singing to the euphoric music of The Proclaimers.
An Integral Part of Working Life
The Mill was built in 1650 by William, the Second Duke of Hamilton, who was then resident in Strathaven Castle which sits adjacent to the Mill. It played an integral part in the working life of Strathaven for three and a quarter centuries.
