Lad falls through roof at the Rank Hovis Mills in Ramsgate

Recommended Posts

Hope so, I thought that the bridge was the worst part of the Ramsgate Mills, the rest of it seemed pretty solid??

Well it held me anyway ;)

I guess news like this brings home the fact that you have to be careful out there, regardless of the exact circumstances, one false move is all it takes.

I hope the lad is OK and my thoughts are well and truly with his family right now.

      I am a filmmaker and YouTuber, and i'm trying to get into Urbex. I really enjoy finding out about the history of the sites that i want to visit and exploring them with my son.
      Last week we visited a site in West Yorkshire. The site is an old fur fabrics mill and has been covered before on this forum.

      This is a first attempt at Urbex, so go easy on me!

      TONE MILLS
      ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
      Tone Works was the dyeing and finishing works established by Fox Brothers and Co of Tonedale Mills, Wellington, at the confluence of the River Tone and the Back Stream . The site is shown on the Tithe map of 1839, and the works was enlarged and altered over the next 80 years. In 1912 the site was described as having ' perhaps the largest Indigo Dye House in England' The site continued in production until the 1990's.
      Tone Works is a near- complete example of a C19 cloth dyeing and finishing works, which developed between c.1830 and c.1920. It retains all of the component structures associated with the dyeing and finishing of worsted and woollen cloths, together with the machinery and fittings required for those processes Tone Works in its present form is an exceptional survival in a national context, not only for the completeness of the building complex , but also for the survival of its machinery, water management system and power generation plant.

      Sometimes you visit a site which is like stepping back in time. This is one of those places!
