You should be standing facing the interpretation panel at the side of the trail. Across the fields you should be able to see the impressive Cressbrook Mill. The print above shows the mill in its heydey during the 1850s, making high-quality cotton for the lace-making industry.
The original mill, built in 1779 by Sir Richard Arkwright, was burnt down in 1785. It was rebuilt in 1787 by Sir Richard Arkwright Jnr, and a further large extension was built in 1814. The mill ceased spinning in 1965.
