Over the past century The Roman Lakes has welcomed hundreds of thousands of visitors. It offers the ideal location from which to walk, cycle, picnic, canoe, fish or take refreshment within the tea rooms.

 

The Roman Lakes and surrounding valley were once central to the great enterprise that was Samuel Oldknows Mellor 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 and is now the subject of archaeological excavations that you can get involved in.

 

After the destruction of the mill in 1892 the Roman Lakes was transformed into a pleasure park with a dance hall, boating and amusements

such as penny slot machines.

 

The Roman Lakes and wider valley area continue to offer great opportunities for all to enjoy the valleys rich history and ecology.
