Friday photo - the Ballast Trust

2:20 PM

The Ballast Trust is based in Johnstone and has been since 1992 when Bill Lind bought a former furniture factory belonging to James E Robertson & Sons Ltd. Before this, the Trust worked from the Joiners shop at the Kingston Yard of Scott-Lithgows and before that at Malcolms of Brookfield.

The original purpose of the site means that we have plenty of room. The buildings on the left hand side of the courtyard are our offices and work room and the ones on the right act as a receiving store.

The space means that we are able to store large quantities of records in the receiving store and have the room to work on several collections of plans and drawings at the same time in our work room (shown below).
