Christine & Alan Piper: “Industrial history of Lumsdale”

The Lumsdale Valley is a site of national archaeological and historic importance. The mills and the associated water management features form one of the best examples in Great Britain of a water-powered industrial archaeological site.  Its uniqueness comes from seeing such an extensive use of water power in such a relatively small area and it’s so local to us!
