    Default Milford mill


    The Milford mill complex, built by Jebediah and William Strutt, spanned the A6 toll road, upstream from Milford bridge. Started in the 1780s to spin cotton, it expanded to include bleaching and dyeing mills. William built the warehouse in 1793, experimenting to produce a multi-storey fire-proof mill.The extant dyehouse near the bridge was a later more successful attempt. This was the 3rd stop of the day, spent a good few hours wondering round this site.

    Cheers Tbolt, looks pretty much the same from the last few reports, the only thing was the dryer glass in now smashed.
