We’ve gone live!

Welcome to LadeBraes.net. Our site is now live and invites you to browse through pages of historic and environmental information relating to the Lade Braes, a medieval mill lade that meanders from west to east through the ancient city of St Andrews, Scotland.

This site was initially developed to bring people closer to the history and usage of the mills and mill lade but has since grown to encompass all aspects of the Lade Braes; the history, the walk, the flora and the fauna.

Those visiting this site are invited to contribute suggestions, information and images to further expand this growing resource. Please get in touch by using the contact form. We look forward to reading your comments and suggestions.

We would like to thank The St. Andrews Preservation Trust, The National Library of Scotland and St Andrews University Library Archive, where much of our research relating to the Lade Braes was sourced.
