|Description ||Curious stone head, locally referred to as a "Celtic Head", is built into the wall of the heritage garden (Wall of History) next to the Bacup Natural History Society Museum (N.A.T.S) on Yorkshire Street (Todmorden Road).|
According to the notice board in the garden, the carved stone head was taken from the chimney of Rockcliffe Vale Mill, Bacup, on its day of demolition 14th April 1913. The head bears the curious figure of a human face. The mill was originally built back in 1837.
The stone head may, in fact, only date back a couple of hundred years - who knows ? Another carved stone has what may be an animal's head.
