Timeline

1872 Aug 12th For a period of six months, the Brunswick Mill (purchased by the Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway Company, and surrounded by Blackbank St, Simpson Stand Scott St) has ceased to work, and the lodge adjoining the mill has remained one of the most conspicuous and palpable nuisances that one can possibly conceive, scenes of revolting brutality being constantly perpetrated on its banks previous to the drowning of some members of the canine and feline species. It is no exaggeration to state that some 60 or 70 of these animals are at present deposited there, and many are now to be seen on the surface in a very advanced state of decomposition.
The effluvia arising from this stagnant pool is sufficient to create an epidemic over which we could have but little control.
One can hardly believe it is possible that such a public nuisance could exist for such a period without being noticed by those persons appointed solely to look after that which would be likely to prove so detrimental to the health and interests of the inhabitants.

1884 John Calvert (pinter).

1985 Previously demolished site part of Warburton Bakery.

2016 Location completely redeveloped.
