Bamford is a popular village within the Peak National Park, with good amenities, public transport including railway service, excellent local school and the Sickleholme Golf Club. Sheffield is approximately fourteen miles drive and Manchester/Manchester Airport is approximately thirty two miles.
Historic Background - Bamford Mill is situated alongside the River Derwent in one of the unspoilt villages in the Peak District of Derbyshire and dates back to the 1780s. It was original owned by Christopher Kirk, a member of a well respected Derbyshire family. He converted the then Corn Mill, to cotton processing. Unfortunately the Mill was largely destroyed by a disastrous fire on 24 October 1791 and lay sadly derelict for the next thirty years, after which Samuel Moore, a Mill owner from Manchester, rebuilt Bamford Mill and left the management of his new venue to his son, William Cameron Moor.
Cameron Moore owned much land in the parish of Bamford and built several cottages, the Village School in 1841, The Church in 1860 and The Rectory in 1863. The Mill featured water powered machinery invented by the renowned Richard Arkwright (1732-92). He was perhaps the most famous cotton pioneer and has often been described as the founder to the modern factory system.
In 1845, the Mill employed 100 people, by 1860 this figure had more than doubled to 230, many of whom walked up to four miles daily, to their twelve hour day which began at 6.00am! The Mill changed hands several times during the next 100 years and was used to varying purposes, largely engineering orientated. However, its external feature remained unchanged, Set examples, such as the Clock Tower and the fully operations engine affectionally known as 'Edna', still remain as a testimony to its industrial past.
Today, The Mill, which is of great architectural and historical interest, has been beautifully and sympathetically converted by Gleeson Homes to provide quite outstanding and unique accommodation for the discerning buyer wishing to secure a lovely home of rare and unusual quality, in an idyllic location, as the River Derwent ebbs gently past The Mill, fishing rights are accorded to all residents.
