Leadbeater Dam, Warley
Leadbeater Dam, Warley
This was constructed in 1835-6 by the Cold Edge dam Co., which was formed c. 1806 to store water running off the moors in reservoirs and make it available to various mills on payment of rents by the mill owners. They had control of Spring Dam, abandoned in 1970, and also constructed Haigh Cote Dam. Construction was, at least in part, by Leadbeater and Stansfield, who had experience in canal construction.
