My wife and I have recently moved into Peel Mills and I've tried to find its history but, beyond the fact it was opened in 1855, I've not been able to find any information about it.

Can anyone help please?

Aspinall - I'm afraid I can't help at the moment but if you do come across any archives from any of the mills in Horbury, I'd be very grateful to know how to access them. In the census, the occupation of both my great-grandfather Edward Armitage and his father David Armitage was "overlooker in a worsted mill". I do not know which mill, or different mills. They lived at West End Cottages on Quarry Hill. If I find anything that may help you, I will try to contact you through this page.
