The North Mill was built around 1819 to spin worsted yarn for twisting with silk to make the fashionable dress fabric bombazine.
It became a cotton mill in 1826. It was built of fire-proof construction, and if you look closely you will see that the thick walls taper inwards towards the top.
The Lancaster Canal has inspired generations of artists, playwrights, poets and writers. JMW Turner painted the Lune Aqueduct in 1816.
The next trail QR codes are north beside Bath Mill Stables or south by Moor Lane South Mill.
