The mill at the bottom of Leyland Mill Lane what used to be Potter's Herbals and the Malt works used to be an iron foundry which was always said to have once belonged to the Wigan Coal & Iron Company, the Laxey Wheel is said to have been cast there. When I worked at Potter's in the early 1970's the hooks on which they hung the iron bedsteads etc onto after being laquered were still evident along with the old railway line which would have gone to Red Rock station.
