Over the past century the Roman Lakes has welcomed hundreds of thousands of visitors. The Roman Lakes and surrounding valley were once central to the great enterprise that was Samuel Oldknow's Mellor Mill. Built in 1792, Mellor mill was once the largest water mill in Europe and in 1804 five hundred and fifty people worked at the mill. The Lakes provided water for the mill that was located within the grounds of what is now known as the Roman Lakes. Mellor Mill was destroyed by fire in 1892 after which the Roman Lakes was transformed into a pleasure resort. Hoards of visitors came from the surrounding towns to go boating on the lakes, play little penny slot machines, visit the Tea Rooms and take part in quite genteel Tea Dances.
The Roman Lakes continues to offer great opportunities to enjoy the valley’s rich history and ecology and celebrate with family and friends.
