1. WATER LANE
SK 2956 1/81
Of late C18 origin and built by Richard Arkwright to provide the motive
power for his machine shop. The large iron overshot wheel appears to be
later and is housed between a massive and partly ruinous stone wall and
the gabled end of the former machine shop, now much altered, largely rebuilt
and used as a motor repair shop.
