Arrow Coke Ovens Rakewood road Milnrow, Aug 2010 - 18-08-2010, 20:16

Coke Ovens Rakewood road Milnrow Aug 2010

This is the old Coke ovens by the side of Hollingworth lake, I don't know any of the history of this place but what I can tell you for sure Its a death trap, I tried to get to the base of the inside of the chimney but failed due to the slippery clay like substance on the floor and the wrong type of footwear .
















































Thanks for looking, Enjoy.

This place looks like a textile mill rather than a coke oven, but I could be wrong.

Definitely not coke ovens, that's a textile mill. I have the coke ovens near Hollingworth Lake on my 'to do' list and will be there soon.
