Full Description

Rolfe's Mill, Wesley Street, converted to cottages many years ago. (1) Rolfe's Mill was one of a number of cotton mills built at Glossop at the end of the 18th century. It was completed in 1785 and, unlike the other mills, appears never to have been water-powered. It only employed ten people and was only ever marginally profitable. It closed in 1806 and the building was converted to cottages which still stand in Wesley Street. (2)
