A good photo showing an interesting
period of industrial history, when things were done differently. I sometimes think I would like to step back in time as an invisible outsider & see how things were then.

If these stones had been closer to a main road they would have been on the back of a lorry a long time ago.

Not actually the mill race, but a good pic showing the millstones (edge runners) for grinding logwood.
Wigan Archaeological Society have an excellent report on this water mill, which is shown on maps as Arley Mill.
