The East Lancashire Paper Mill in Radcliffe was established on 29th March 1860 and was operational by 1862. It survived until 2001. The site of the works has been cleared and few traces remain. The photo shows the offices and main gate to the papermill in the 1970s.
Part of the site was originally a textile printing works belonging Messr Hutchinson. The generator house had a Uniflow steam engine by Musgrave Bolton and a Mather and Platt generator.
