Piscatoribus sacrum
Piscatoribus sacrum
"A small gritstone structure standing by the ruins of the 15th century bridge chapel and created from an earlier range of farm buildings. The fishing lodge was fashioned by Richard Arkwright junior to function as a dwelling for his water bailiff. By the early nineteenth century it was in use as a workman’s cottage. It is a copy of the fishing lodge on the River Dove made famous by Isaac Walton and Charles Cotton. The inscription over the door lintel reads “piscatoribus sacrum” - sacred to fishermen."
