Is this mill anywhere near Chadderton? I've got a meeting over there next week, might go and have a look, although I can't really explore in work clothes!

Excellent pictures feller. I used to work at this very mill many years ago when it mas making suit cases. I didn't know it was in such a bad way but the shots you've taken are great. Well done.

Ojay - I've seen your Private Message but I can't reply to it (I don't think I've got permissions).

Would it be possible to send me your email address via PM and I'll send an email back to you.

Alternatively, is it possible to unlock PM's?

Cheers.

@andym - The mill is opposite Oldham Athletic's ground just off the A627M (just down the road from me!)

These are great pictures of this mill. It is very sad to see a building with features like this being riped down. They are getting on with the demolition very fast. By the looks of it they have riped out aload of wood and most of the wires and metal, so i dont think it will be long before they start on the outside structure. Im going to have a nip up again later on in the week and see if i can get some video of them pulling down the structure.

I really like your pictures, great shots mate. The wide angle ones are especially good. Love the B&W BTW
