Historical Chronicle, August 1748: At Mellor on Saturday the 23rd of July last, there was a very great storm of rain, attended with consistant lightning and thunder. The storm lasted for 4 hours with some hail of 2 inch circumference. The Brooks and the river Goyt were swelled much higher than ever was known in the memory of man, by which several thousand pounds damage was done to the mills, bridges, houses, fences and corn; several acres of land were entirely swept away, and nothing left but bare rock, and others were covered with large heaps of gravel.
