Chatterton Cottages
Chatterton Cottages
Chatterton had its own mill which was the scene of a clash between soldiers and handloom weavers during the powerloom riots of April 1826.
Several of the rioters were shot and killed.
The remains of Chatterton mill (where the photographer is stood) were demolished towards the end of the 19th century and in 1923 its site was made into playing fields and given to the people of Ramsbottom as a ‘Peace Memorial.
A plaque SD7918 : The Chatterton Riots Plaque giving the details of what happened in 1826 can be found above the white door of the cottage in the left of the picture.
