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 Clough Mill was originally owned by Samuel Firth of Gatehead in Marsden, and opened in 1888. 

Sam also owned Holme Mill. By the 60s, it was owned and run by company Fisher, Firth & Co. which named the mill "Cellars Clough Woollen Mills Ltd", managed by another Firth son, in 1981. The company has since been dissolved and the mill is believed to have closed in the 80s. 

Previous planning applications have been unsuccessful because it was discovered that bats were found to be residing insude mill. 

The bats cannot be forcibly removed, so the hope was that they would eventually move on.

Wings of the mill have been demolished; presumably to let nature in and destroy the mill?

Nice wander dude.

I imagine its been cleared to allow for the development plan;



As you can see, they may well plan to use the remaining building.
