Egremont in Cumbria

 

 

Seal finds from Egremont.

In the 1800's Egremont was thriving. Tanneries, Corn Mills, Sailcloth Mills, Flint Mills and Flax Mills had all been built along the River Ehen from which they obtained their motive power. Whitehaven based Joseph Bell formed a new partnership with John Bragg. Bragg was a Quaker, owned a bleachfield at Egremont and was a 'Russia Merchant' i.e. he imported flax and hemp, which made him an ideal partner. Together they took a site in Castle Meadows, paying a rent of 18s.5d. a year, and built the mill in 1809. By 1810 they were advertising for labour, for a man to attend the steam engine, for overseers and instructors for the apprentices, and for 'stout boys to swingle and dress flax'. Low Mill was operated by one James Elliott and by 1808 was being run on steam. Other mills were Greendyke flax mill built c.1760 and High Mill, built as fulling mill in the 1760's and converted to a flax mill by 1861.
