|Higher Mill 1918|
In 1891 two mills existed in Hoghton, owned by C Walmsley and Sons.
Higher mill, was located about two miles down Chapel Lane in the valley of Hoghton Bottoms. It was water powered, the mill race running alongside the River Darwen, starting near the railway viaduct. As a young girl, my grandmother worked in this mill until her marriage in December 1924.
