Dane Mills Bosley
By Chris R. Pownall

This book is about the notable developments over the past six decades, at the two mills in rural Cheshire, known as ‘Dane Mills Bosley’.

An industrial and social history of the people and business activities at Dane Mills, Bosley
'Dane Mills Bosley' dates back to the mid-eighteenth century when the machinery was driven by water wheels, powered by water from the River Dane. Over the years, the Mills have been engaged in many different business activities including, Metallurgical, Textiles, Corn Milling & Organic Fibre Production. This book provides detailed information about the people and the industrial processes in place, at Dane Mills Bosley, during the 1960s, in a small village in rural Cheshire. Find out more


Author Chris Pownall says “I trust this book will capture the culture of the Mills where I served my engineering apprenticeship between 1959 & 1966. It should appeal to those interested in social history as well as followers of our industrial heritage from a bygone era.”
