The mill is still standing at least part of it as well as the chimney.

Re: cotton mills in waterfoot

In the far and distant past I used to work there (Lolly Mill) not for long, but long enough.

And before that as kids we would play around the mill and under it.

Re: Cotton mills in waterfoot

Just out of interest, am I on the right mill, I am referring to Butterworths Dale Mill, Caleb Shepherd were at Sagar Holme Mill,
Which is Lolly Mill, presumably a nickname for one of the above....

Am I thinking that mill is somewhere on my Panoromic Photo taken from Seat Naze?
