Location: Knoll Mill, Greenfield

Present: Myself

State: Demolition In Progress

This is my 2nd explore using my D40, so again, some pictures may not be great but hopefully an Improvement on my previous reports.

I'd actually like to give 28DL member 'HOST' a shout out for this one, He agreed to meet me at 6 this morning to help me with Fletchers Paper Mill, the planned access had been sealed on arrival, so he agreed to show me a way into this place. Again, much appreciated!

History, in a Nutshell is this place housed a couple of different businesses, but it's primary purpose was cotton spinning, for which there was plenty of evidence of.

The site is huge and there's lots to be found, I covered around 1/3 of the site today, and intend to tackle the rest shortly.

Demolition works are in progress , to make way for a new Supermarket and housing.

Hope you enjoy...

1. Last cart outta' here

4. You heard the man

5. I beleive this to be a cotton barrel

6. Love free stuff

7. Storage Bay Signage

8. Management Overwatch

9. It comes off the walls

10. In the main mill most floors were like this

11. Caveman creativity

12. Lift Pulley

13. Loose Hinges

14. Now where's that lighter...

Now, this, I felt was an interesting little find, I appeared to stumble across a little medical centre. The 'hearing test' room was actually a kitchen. There was more to this little place, which was well hidden away, however, I was spooked by a sensation of somebody being VERY close....

15. Come again? WHAT?

16. Some kind of 100 in 1 Oven, Grill thingamajig

17. Must of missed it

Again, big thanks to Host on this one :Not Worthy

Like I said, covered around a 1/3 but I'll definitely be back to see what else this place has offer.
