Full Description

Lee Vale Rope Works, along Glossop Road, was owned and worked by John Booth & Sons (Charlesworth) Ltd. During the 1930s and 40s when the mill was making long ropes, a rope walk was used, and this often 'stretched down the fields as far as Long Lane'. The mill came into disuse after the Second World War and the building was eventually demolished. Now, on the land where the mill once stood, a modern estate was built in the 1960s - namely Lee Vale Gardens Estate. (1)
