About Mellor Mill

Mellor Mill, once the largest spinning mill in the world employing hundreds of women and children, is now an archaeological site which has been taken over by nature. Volunteers have worked for three years to uncover the foundations of the mill, which was decimated by a fire in 1892. Now we can continue the dig and start to better understand this awesome mill and the lives of the local people who worked there.

Three more years of archaeology, with help from volunteers, sensitive construction and new interpretation will transform this buried treasure into Mellor Mill Heritage Park, a country park within the grounds of the Roman Lakes. Visit to find out more
