Below the mill site, a small brick building once held the pumps used to regulate water levels in the river and pump water to Langwith Colliery.Next the river passes through an arch of a two-arched viaduct built in the 1870s by the Midland Railway.The colliery closed in 1978 and by 1987 most of the site had been cleared, although a shaft was retained to pump water from the pit into the river to keep the neighbouring Creswell Colliery drained.The waste tips were landscaped in 1988 to form the country park.Langwith Mill House marks the location of a cotton mill built in 1786.It had four storeys and was one of the largest of its type in the region.There have been mills here for several centuries, for a cotton mill was destroyed by fire in 1792.
The country park was the location of Langwith Colliery's waste tip.
