The Restoration of Bugsworth Basin. A teeming, thriving industrial centre, Bugsworth Basin was once a kind of open air factory on the grandest scale. Today, it has become a place of remarkable natural and man made beauty, peace and quiet. It still, however, offers some wonderful insights into our industrial history and possesses some amazing industrial archaeology. Ian Edgar and Don Baines, partly responsible for the remarkable restoration of Bugsworth Bsin, relate its story.
