Litton Mill, Derbyshire

Litton Mill is a textile mill at Millers Dale, near Tideswell in Derbyshire. The original 19th century mill became notorious during the Industrial Revolution for its unsavoury employment practices, luridly described by the commentators of the day, and the testimony of Robert Blincoe, a parish apprentice who had been indentured to work at the mill. It was set up in 1782 by Ellis Needham and Thomas Frith, both farmers with small estates in the area.
