Full Description

Some of the workers' cottages nearby still stand, though their conversion into cow-sheds has made them almost indistinguishable from the other farm buildings: only the old fireplaces, and in one case the stairs and banister-rail, indicate conclusively their origin. Other cottages have been pulled down, but some of their foundations can still be made out beneath a sea of farmyard muck. Cotton Mill Farm represents the remains of a small self-contained industrial community which failed, and of which practically nothing is known. (1)
