Low Mill cotton mill was built for cotton weaving in 1783 on the site of a 13th-century corn mill. The mill was built by Thomas Hodgson who was a slave-trader and the son of a Liverpool merchant. The Mill was still in use up until the 1970's and has since been converted into apartments. The grounds on which the Mill stand, can now be enjoyed by the residents with extensive open countryside walks and seating areas to enjoy. There was a large red brick chimney built in 1918 which was actually demolished by Fred Dibnah in1990. Close by in the centre of the village of Caton you will find a range of amenities and easy access to the M6 Motorway or the City of Lancaster can be gained easily.
