Once There Were Chimneys.
Royton is a place with a long history with Stone Age activity in the area, ancient Britain’s inhabited the district. There is a Viking/Norse connection with hamlet called ‘Thorp’ meaning farm in Old Norse. Romans traversed the town.
The first powered cotton mill was located in Royton and from that after the industrial revolution steam powered cotton mills were built all over the district, there were 40 mills in Royton alone! After the demise of the cotton industry the mill chimneys have all but vanished which gave Robert inspiration to undertake this painting
