The date of the building of the first mill is uncertain, but it has been estimated as , the work of construction having been put in the hands of William Newton, a self-educated poetic joiner from Cockey Farm, Abney. Soon after being built, the three-storeyed building was destroyed by fire on 15 November , but rebuilding took place two years later on the same site.
Water power at this stage was provided by the Cressbrook, water from the mill pond passing beneath the road and on to the mill before discharging into the Wye. After Arkwright’s death in the mill, used for cotton weaving, passed into other hands and in Newton came back as manager. The year saw the construction of the big mill building of Georgian appearance which now dominates the scene; this had two large waterwheels and was powered by the River Wye, dammed to form a mill pool in the limestone gorge.
Later a steam engine was introduced to supplement the water power in times of drought and in about water turbines were installed.

SN SN I own a Curta II in a plastic case, serial , with instruction leaflet and a copy of the yellow computations manual. This is in excellent used condition. Bought from Bryan Halladay in England and was used in rallying. I am learning to use it competently in historic rallying of my MGB Roadster. I am interested in trading for a mint Curta I or Curta II in a metal case that is complete with all literature and box. Also I would like to obtain a lether rally case as well. I am looking also for a complete Curta I in box with case, all original literature.
I have located a “Curta cup” which attatches the Curta to a clipboard for rallying. I am told that a cable was also attatched as another piece of rally gear. Perhaps someone could educate me about this cable affair. I am also looking for an excellent late Curta II,complete with box, original literature to use everyday, as well as a Curta I with all of its literature and box to round off my collection.

Rock of ages, cleft for me An insight into the history, craft and splendour of dry stone walling. Dry stone wall near Askrigg, Yorkshire Dales. My earliest memory of dry stone walls comes from when I was about 8 years old, when on holiday in the Yorkshire Dales; I found a baby shrew sat on a stone protruding out of one of the dry stone walls near to where we were having a picnic.
I was told by my mother that it probably lived in the wall, and I was puzzled and transfixed as to how an animal could actually live in the middle of a wall. Many birds too, such as the robin, wheatear and redstart, and the occasional small owl, have been known to occupy larger gaps, with mosses, lichens and ferns favouring the outside of the walls. I vaguely recollect asking my mother lots of other related questions, such as how the walls managed to stand up what with all the gaps in them, where all the stone came from to build them, who built them, and why they were built in the first place.
The fact they were built a long, long time ago, and the animals and plants made the wall their home, or used them as hiding places from predators, was about all I remember from my early questions.

Could not subscribe, try again laterInvalid Email Police believe they may have thwarted a Christmas terror attack plot with the arrest of four men, it was reported. The men were arrested on suspicion of plotting an Islamist terror attack as armed police carried out a series of dramatic pre-dawn raids and a bomb squad inspected a residence over fears it contained explosives. Anti-terror police worked with MI5 as they detained three men aged 22, 36 and 41, at different addresses in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, while a year-old man was arrested in Chesterfield, Derbyshire.
The arrests – on the one-year anniversary of the Berlin Christmas market attack – come after the terror group ISIS urged its supporters to kill innocent people at Christmas markets and other tourist attractions in Europe and the US. Neighbours of a home being searched in Chesterfield were evacuated as a precaution as the Army’s bomb squad joined the investigation and was seen removing “packages”.

We lost many footballs and tennis balls that year, as the blanket ban on disturbing the archaeology remained in force. Looking back nearly 20 years later as a professional archaeologist, the significance of the those excavations remains strong, Anyone who studies Anglo-Saxon archaeology or church archaeology will have heard of Repton, Martin Biddle and Birthe Kjolbye-Biddle. This is not a site report on the Repton excavations.
It is to show to my generation of Reptonians what was going on under those covers and sheets, and hopefully explain why we could never retrieve our tennis balls. To those not of our generation this article is intended to demonstrate the archaeological significance of Repton School, and what the discoveries there have meant. There are many aspects of Repton School that imply some antiquity.
The church of St Wystan is visibly mediaeval in date, and the village itself has a market cross of similar date outside the school grounds. However the story of Repton goers back further.
