Local History

Posted by Ainsley (Derbyshire, United Kingdom) on 25 July 2014 in Landscape & Rural.

- Over the next two weeks I will be doing a short series to showcase the deep history that I have on my doorstep here in Derbyshire. Each day will pin point a place I have visited with my camera and tell you about why it's in my local history series.

These are the remains of Arkwright's water mill in Lumsdale, one of the first water powered mill in the world.

This marks the end of my series on Local History. I hope you have enjoyed it.

What a lovely old mill. We don't have too many left in this country and very few that are actually working. I love the stone. Beautifully composed!
