Spring Cottage 6127

Bury, Greater Manchester, England, Greater Manchester

Brief Description

Spring Cottage had a house with grounds on a steeply-sloping site bounded by the River Irwell to the north-west and Goats Lane and Back Lane to the south. There were open areas on other boundaries. The house is surrounded by woods. It abuts Spring Water Print Works, and is connected to it by a winding path system, and may be part of the same complex. By 1894 the house was called Spring Water House and the print works has become a bleach works. Elements of the site survive. The house was demolished, but industrial buildings remain. The grounds are now part of open space.
