Sutton Mill Dam, St.Helens
Sutton Mill Dam, St.Helens
This is Sutton Mill Dam as seen from the dam end. It's right in the middle of two housing estates near Sutton Leach, St.Helens. Not too sure about its history but I think it's safe to say that it was built to serve a local mill. I couldn't find any signs of the mill but there was a Millhouse pub nearby. A local told me that a couple of years ago there was a fire close by and toxins were washed into the dam that, at the time, was a thriving fishing venue. The dam is now on the mend I believe.
