Rivelin Valley Conservation Group and Ruskin in Sheffield
The corn mill was the base for the Rivelin Valley Artists colony and there are several paintings of this small industrial settlement. Scott-Temple lived there throughout the 1920s. W R E Goodrich’s painting of the corn mill cottages, Ben Baines’ watercolour viewed from the bank of the Rivelin, and Vernon Edmunds’ view from down-stream of the Rails road all give a flavour of the picturesque setting that inspired so many of the artists. The Goodrich oil painting of cows wandering down nearby Lodge Lane and Scott-Temple’s picture of the natural swimming pool a little downstream show just how unchanged this part of the valley remains, even today.
