Goyt mill a charm and jewel of Marple life


Marple’s contemporary community has little knowledge of historic Marple and the role and the importance of former mills, including Goyt Mill. The people mostly associated with this history are from the older generations in the community. Friends of Goyt Mill was set up to locate, document and publish people’s experiences and knowledge of Goyt Mill of Marple in a new way so that communities and visitors will be able to explore, learn and enjoy the heritage.


Friends of Goyt Mill Heritage has been set up to create opportunities for everyone who knows or wishes to know of Marple’s historic past to enhance other historic organisations and friends associations and clubs through a variety of activities that bring people together, share stories of their experiences and knowledge of Marple including its historic buildings and landmarks whilst highlighting its global and Commonwealth connections.
