Archaeology report - (13/11)

Torrs Hydro have funded extra copies of the archaeology report on Torr Mill created by Archaeological Research Services - copies of this are now at New Mills Town Hall, New Mills Library, The New Mills Heritage and Information Centre, Torrs Hydro site and shortly to go to New Mills schools as well.
Torr Mill was destroyed by fire in 1912 and Torrs Hydro now lives in the same spot that the original wheel pit for the mill was situated.
The report is an excellent study on the findings of the archaeological study as the remains of the mill were gradually uncovered earlier in teh year.
If anyone is interested in owning a copy themselves please email me -
