As an important renewable resource, moving water plays a key role in both small and large scale power production in Britain. Lumsdale Waterfall and its drainage, in the Peak District of Derbyshire, was utilised by 18th and 19th century industrial mills. Primitive wheels turned by the flow of the river created power for cotton spinning, stone and bone crushing, washing and bleaching. All small industry ceased in this valley in the early 20th Century. Today the valley is a quiet nature reserve with historic archeological remnants of former workings clearly visible hidden amongst ivy and trees.
