I first recce'd this place in Spetember last year, but couldn't find a way in, it was buttoned up tight, although an emergency exit appeared to have been freshly repaired, and I concluded I'd missed my chance by a day or two. However, I took a few externals and made a note to keep my eye on it whenever I was in the area.
Roll onto this year and King Elvis posts a report - I'd taken my eye off the ball, access had been gained and it had got wrecked. Still, I fel compelled to take a look as, well, as it was there.

Info lifted from Geograph you've probably seen it on other reports anyway:

Built in 1801 Edenwood mill has been empty since 2001.
In the early part of the last century the factory was extended and developed as a dyeing facility for Turnbull and Stockdale Limited, to compliment their weaving, bleaching, printing and distribution activities.
Today the empty mill could be given a new lease of life with plans to transform it into 25 luxury apartments which would mean the mill chimney and part of the red brick buildings being demolished.
The apartments are expected to range from 250,000 to 400,000.

As it was in September:

As it is now:

First floor isn't in great condition. Unusual to find wooden floors in a comparatively late mill building.

Not sure if there was once a water wheel - there is a reservoir behind the mill which this stream feeds. Lovely location.

The original bit of the mill. I think this bit will be saved, although the walls are bulging massively.

Stone floors and wooden floors - very odd.

Not sure what this machine did, but it's been smashed up since King Elvis and Chewy's reports on DP
