- A matter of great importance was the building in 1923 of the fire station, which had proved its usefulness throughout the period and perhaps particularly during the war. [same web site refers to 2 fires, one in 1912 and one in 1915, when no fire brigade existed in New Mills] Councillor Kitchen recalled that the first fire engine was named Susan. [cannot confirm if this building is the fire station referred to, or a different location]
- has picture of fire Engine 'Susan' and firemen at Fire Station in Hague Bar Road, c.1930's. This fire engine was purchased by New Mills Council in 1936. It was first used in January 1937 at Beard Mill
