The Three mile water angling club stocked it with fingerlings (small rainbow trout 3 years ago, fish are now 6-7lb weight i was talking to one of the members on tuesday at the dam he tells me they have not started fishing it yet, dont know who you seen fishing it may have been a member checking on condition of the fish as i think it would be a very brave man would try to poach it ;) ,whilst i was there a girl was feeding the ducks the trout were getting more of the bread than the ducks were .

My G. grandfather was a fitter/mechanic in Mossley mill sometime in the 1800's and lived in either Red Row or White Row, which may have been Mossley Village.

I remember an old lady who lived in Mossley telling me about the Mill, she lived in Sunnyside.  She mentioned Red Crescent and White Crescent in her chats to me (was a long long time ago, wish I had listened more intently), of course she was only going on what she had been told about the history of the Mill and Mill houses. She herself had worked in the Mill. There is no Red Crescent/Row or White Crescent/Row in Mossley now, the first Mossley Housing Estate was built on it and the row of  houses facing the dam are called The Crescent possibly where the old mill houses where.  If you want a photo perhaps the Council at Mossley Mill will be able to help.

if you click on this link and go to the history of the mill it mentions White Crescent & Red Crescent being built for the mill workers

Great photos of Mossley Mill - Newtownabbey Borough Council are to be congratulated for the work of restoration.
I started work there in 1949 as a message boy rising to the dizzy heights of Junior Clerk in the Thread Dept. before I left in 1951.
