Rugby Mill
One of a group of four still extant mills in the south west corner of Chadderton.
Built in 1908 to the design of F. W. Dixon & Son, a local competitor to the renowned Stott dynasty. The engine was a 1200 hp cross-compound by George Saxon.
The mill was still largely complete in 2010 except for the chimney, but by then was unoccupied and showing signs of increasing decay.
