Coal Bank Mill

 Coal Bank Mill

According to the Monkey Town: The History of Heywood website, situated close to Naden Brook and  marked on  the 1847 O.S map as a cotton mill, and consecutively  listed, in 1891, 1928,1938. However the site is not listed on the 1955 map. Observing the ruin, the original building may have been dated to around the 1790's.

The site of what was once part of  a thriving textile industry, located within Ashworth Woods near Wolstenholme Fold. the location is close to Norden village, 3.5 miles North West of Rochdale..

Much of the mill was then pulled down and great quantities of the stonework taken away. Part of a wall still stands, as do the foundations of several buildings at either side of the walkway.

These are the remains of possible 'Fulling Tanks' located close to the ruin, these stone structures would have been used as part of the processing of textiles.
