MC-12 Kincaid Field Calico Printing

Kincaid Printfield Gatehouse

The Kincaid-Lennox family were landowners of the Kincaid Estate who developed various bleach-fields around their local Calico printing works. The cloth was laid out in the field to bleach in the sun hence these areas became known as the bleach-fields.
