Product Description

The River Rivelin rises on the eastern border of the
Peak District National Park and flows
north-eastwards to the outskirts of Sheffield at Malin
Bridge. The three-mile stretch of the lower Rivelin
valley had 20 watermills and 21 mill dams, possibly
the greatest number over that distance in the
country. From the 16th to 20th centuries these
watermills supported industries ranging from cutlery
grinding workshops and metal forges to paper mills
and corn mills. Now largely wooded, paths beside
the fast-flowing river provide access to see the varied
wildlife and historical remains of the valley.
This book combines a trail guide with a wealth of
information about the lower Rivelin valley. It is
richly-illustrated with old photographs and maps
showing what the valley was like in the past.
