      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.

      Not much online about this one, it used to be a smelting yard which also carried out other work such as Automotive and presumably welding of sorts.   A nice little mooch for 45 mins or so.  Its had a recent fire, unfortunately destroying quite a rare model of Datsun stored inside.  
       
      Visited with Mookster and our American Explorer friend on a February Northern Road Trip.

      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?

      I have found a location close to me in West Yorkshire that has been covered before, the site is nearly completely destroyed but the main barn and some of the out buildings still exist. 
      I enjoyed looking around the site and turning it into a cinematic style video (i hope i aren't hated for it, my last video i posted on here went down well).
       
      Let me know what you think of the video.

      Hey guys! I’m Laura and I’m from New York. I’m a musician, artist and history geek. I’ve loved abandoned buildings for as long as I can remember. The mysterious feel they give, their backstories, it’s all incredible. They’re like time machines into our past.
