Visited here with Gimbulate and L_Glass. The building itself is like the Tardis, looks very small from the outside, but inside it's huge.

The mill dates back from 1830 when it was a scouring room and dyehouse to local villagers in the area, Broadhead & Graves bought the mill in 1909 from Martin Sons & Company and supplied high quality worsteds to many London tailors. Unfortunately they fell into financial trouble due to lack of demand and were put into administration in 2004, with the mill finally closing in 2005.

Now, onto the pictures, very photogenic site so little more than usual.

Bit of national pride here.

Typical smashed glass shot

All the machinery still on site.

Damage from an arson back in April I believe.

More fire damage

Hard to really capture how badly buckled the floor is here, litterally looks like waves in the floorboards

Strange green pool outside

Good visit, wish we could have spent more time here but it was getting late and we had to get back, definitely one of those sites you can keep coming back to though.
