Full Description

Remains of Rowarth Grove Mill and mill dam. (1) One of five mills at Rowarth in the 19th century. At SK 015 900 is a former mill dam, the ruins below which are of Rowarth Grove Mill, said to have been a calico printing works. (2) 1954 OS map shows Grove Farm near mill ruins at SK 016 897, suggesting that this is the site of Grove Mill rather than the site at SK 015 900. (3) It would certainly appear that the SK 016 897 location was served by an enclosed trackway from the north east side, whereas the SK 015 900 location is somewhat more isolated. This might indicate that the mill was at the SK 016 897 location. (4) Mill reservoirs to the north of the mill site, built in the early 19th century. Provided regular supply of water for the mills.
