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 been extended over the years to accommodate the increasingly expanding business Dronsfield Mercedes until its closure in around 2009. 

The building has workshop areas, storage areas, offices and also a living quarters. 

Dronsfields Mercedes are the largest independent Mercedes car & commercial vehicle specialist in Europe.

A Saddleworth based company based at Wall Hill Mill. This family run business has over 30 years experience in the industry. 

The Dobcross site covers 8 acres, which means the company were able to fully fulfil customers requirements directly from under one roof while on the site.

Thanks Mate, it makes for a change from the familiar whiff of rotting suspended ceiling tile in an abandoned office environment
