Description

NAME: WATERSTALLS MILL

LOCATION: Bottomley

REF: CD1

GRID REF: 943 212

CLASSIFICATION: A

CONDITION: Ruins

APPROX DATE OF SITE AND BUILDINGS: Early-mid 19C

DESCRIPTION/HISTORY: Perched high on the westerly facing hillside of Walsden Water, only the shell of this mill remains. There was originally an iron works here at the beginning of the 19C, but it was bought by the Fieldens and converted to a cotton mill c1834. A new mill pond was also constructed at this date. It long since ceased working – a victim of its isolated site. The remains of a three storey building, the wheel pit and race can be seen, as well as the three small dams above.

PRESENT USE AND POTENTIAL: The Pennine climate is likely to continue to erode the ruins still further. The site is now part of rough grazing land, but reasonable access can be obtained.
