Full Description

Reservoirs associated with Whitehall Paper Mills (SMR 3599) on the opposite side of the Peak Forest Tramway. They were presumably for process water rather than for powering machines, as water for the latter was provided by the millpond to the north-east. (No source reference given) Walled reservoir compound. Mortared gritstone rubble wall in two sections, with concrete step flight between. The embayment houses water storage reservoirs for processes at Stephanie Works, with additional space at west end. Present on 1879 OS map. Reservoirs presumably for process water, rather than for powering machines, as this was provided by the millpond. (1)
