Marshall Mill

Marshall Mill
Marshall Mill (once Clayton Mill) stood 20 yards in from the south bank of the River Dearne, alongside the ancient road from Skelmanthorpe to High Hoyland and direcly opposite the existing Marshall Mill House. The name Marshall is believed to have come from a family of millers traced back to 1638, when the mill would have stood in splendid rural isolation - long, long before the growth of the industrial village of Scissett from 1830. Leslie Robinson’s photos & documents are an evocative record of a bygone age. For more information see Leslie’s book “Remembering Marshall Mill” in our “Books” section.
