  1. 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? #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 #8 #9 #10 More At: https://www.flickr.com/photos/landie_man/albums/72157692916601562

  3. Still miles behind in posting some reports up, but this was from an small trip to Engerlandshire and Welsheepshugger land between Xmas and New Year. First stop of this particular cold morning was one of two mills I visited. The first is known as Tweed Mill, and access is not the easiest, but a bit of decent balance and no stopping half way over its simple enough for what is a bit of a gem of a little mill. Ever since I first saw this place appear on the forums a few years ago, I knew it was right up my street, lots of nice natural decay, and plenty of bits left behind to see!! The second mill, only a mile up the road, was jam packed with machines, making it a bit harder to get the images I wanted, but did my best, known as the Wool Mill. Many thanks for looking, as always, click the pics if you want to see more or visit my Flickr
  4. First set from me from the Englandshire trip, this particular morning we met up with BadBatz and Drinkinbud at particular Hospital but were quickly spotted by secca, and couldn't find a very easy way in, so decided to head of to try somewhere else. Derp Chapel No. 2 was also not an option. Arrived at Derp Mill No.3 of the day and again couldn't seem to find a way in, but also rudely interrupted by a Security guard seeking out details, sadly we all forget them and walked off. Onto Derp No.4 where to our surprise the contractors had moved in, onto site No.5 which actually went smoothly, but this Wool Mill, Derp No.5 of the day was my favourite. Also had it confirmed on good word that this is also BadBatz's favourite explore right after St. Lukes Hospital Quite late in the day and running out of light we dashed around this place getting many long exposures, sadly didn't get to fully explore the offices where all there is lots of bits and bobs left behind! History is very brief but it appears this place was a last home to a Wool Spinning company but has been empty since 2003. On with the pics.. That was it for the day, and big thanks again to BadBatz and Drinkinbud for the laughs during the day, food t night and a place to crash!!
  5. Visited Hospital Postern stairs for some artistic shots. Quick video of Greg spinning wire wool amongst some tea lights. Apologies for the crap quality, just thought some might like to see the making of some photos. http://s1324.photobucket.com/user/Templ ... 5.mp4.html
