Stott Park Bobbin Mill was built in 1835 by John Harrison. Located near Newby Bridge, Cumbria, England, it provided the wooden bobbins to the Lancashire weaving and spinning industry, up to a quarter of a million bobbins per week. The mill was originally powered by a water wheel drawing the water supply from the nearby mill pond. [1]
