Hoghton Valley showing Livesey's factory in the middle of the photo. The factory was known locally as the "Shuttle Shop".
This extract from the 1844 Ordnance Suvery map shows the mill race coming from the Darwen River, passing through Higher Miller, filling a first reservoir, providing water power to Livesey's factory. It then continued through "the cut" on to fill the second reservoir by Lower Mill.
