Sarehole Mill was leased by Matthew Boulton, a pioneer of the Industrial Revolution, who was one of the main members of the Lunar Society, founded by Erasmus Darwin (gradfather of Charles Darwin). 

Tolkien lived within 300 yards of the mill between the ages four and eight, and would have seen it from his house. He has also said that he used the mill as a location in The Lord of the Rings.
