    Great Britain Thompsons Board Mill, Cumbria - May 2018

    I first had a look at this spot in 2015. Almost three years on the place has been knocked about a bit and it seemed stripped somehow from the last visit. Did not spend that long in here. As I parked up an old lady drove passed paying more attention to the my car than I liked, so I blasted round...

    Great Britain Wall Hill Mill, Dobcross, Yorkshire - Feb 2018

    Another one of our February Nothern Road Trip with Mookster, our American friend and myself.  A bit of a strange one this.  An old mill, but vastly converted for commercial use and modernised.  Massively decayed in places. There isn't much early history on the mill building itself; but it has...

    Great Britain Cellars Clough Wool Mill, Marsden, Yorkshire - Feb 2018

    Visited back in Early Feb with Mookster and an American Explorer friend, who is over on an educational placement.   We had quite a Northern Road Trip planned; with around 18 sites on our list, but sadly did about 4 or 5 over two days.  Annoying but that's the nature of this beast! Cellars...
