Ruins of Spinningdale Mill

Comments:
The mill burned down in 1806 following the demise of their business. It seems their workforce was unreliable and disappeared during lambing, harvesting and peating times; hard to run a mill without people.

Many thanks for highlighting the incorrect date in the description - Administrator
