Jonathan Parkhouse contacted me with details of a book covering mills in East Cheshire. It is a very thorough survey of mills, mainly in Macclesfield, Bollington and Congleton, and extremely well illustrated with both historic and recent photographs and drawings.

Jonathan notes that there will also be material in the National Monuments Record (http://www.english-heritage.org.uk/professional/archives-and-collections/nmr/), also searchable through the pastscape website at http://www.pastscape.org.uk/
