Default Oakwood Mill Return 0313 Millbrook Manchester - 23-03-2013, 22:50

I was last here a year ago and have returned on another cold day to find access to the main building! It was sealed last year!
Built in 1851 as a cotton mill but has had many other tenants since the loom boom died down; It has held prisoners of war, precise engineering and bleaching - until 1961! Since then it has been left due to a Grade 2 listing.
A bit dodgy in places to say the least!

Below!






It eats chavs!






Kiln?


Engine room extension. Added to the main building in 1908.


Upper floor.


Twin entrances to a shaft.


Missing top floor and clock tower.


Long shot
