Gledhill’s Stainless ES – The ideal choice to deliver mains pressure hot water to the charming veterinary of Gorebridge, Scotland.


Within the wild landscapes of North Scotland, a Gledhill cylinder sits in the former mining village of Gorebridge, taking residence in a charming building that currently serves as a veterinary surgery.

The home of Scotland’s first gunpowder mill since 1794, Gorebridge is a village ladled with historic buildings and ruins due to it’s fascinating past in serving as the Stobs Mills gunpowder works and then later becoming a local coal mining village. Now redeveloped to facilitate 20th century shops, cafes and services such as the ICR veterinary surgery, the picturesque buildings of this small town still radiate character and tradition.

Dedicated to protecting the health and welfare of the loved pets of Midlothian, ICR Veterinary Surgery relies on consistent hot water everyday to help them carry out their work.
