Moor Lane South Mill

Moor Lane (South Mill) is an old cotton weaving and spinning mill, on the site of a sail cloth factory. The chimney, which was famed for being level with the castle keep, is now gone. It remained in use until 1981 weaving cloth, with the distinctive clattering sound of Lancashire looms. It is linked to Moor Lane North Mill by a tunnel under the road.
