We are located in Goyt Mill in Marple, Cheshire one of the most impressive mills on the Cheshire canal Ring. This red brick building originally spun cotton before transporting it down the Ashton flight into Manchester and thence to the rest of the world.
Construction of the Goyt spinning mill alongside the existing Rhode house or Shepley’s mill began with a ceremony on the 20th of July 1905.
By 1907 parts of the mill were in operation, though it was not fully operational until 1912.
The mill was powered by a 2,500hp steam engine which drew its water from the canal – along which the coal was also delivered. Power from the engine was delivered to the mill by a series of ropes and in turn by belts to the individual machines.
