Arrow Mondi Paper, Creams Mill, Bolton - December 2008 - 21-12-2008, 15:22

Mondi Paper UK at Creams Mill, Bolton closed in December 2004.
The company took the decision after what it called "drastically deteriorating" market conditions, caused by escalating energy costs,
resulting in losses of more than 1 million in 12 months.
The company had 97 employees, some took redundancy, and some transferred to the Ramsbottom site.
The Creams Mill was established in 1677 as William Broadbents.

There seemed to be some pikies on site when we arrived.
(lots of clanging and hammering going on)
we threw a few stones onto the roof to make them aware we knew of their presence.
moments later there was banging of car doors, and the sound of a vehicle leaving at speed

this was the first explore i'd been on where a vehicle could be driven right inside the building

Nice one, I've never been, but from all accounts there's not much to see. However, you've got some nice shots there though.

Taa Andy

not much left, and proper trashed.
recent fire in the admin block, saw that to more or less a badly charred shell too.
we was in the area, so gave it a look.

Looks trashed but certainly something worth seeing in the future! Very grim looking shots, nice work. I like your first shot especially, very cool.
