Lad falls through roof at the Rank Hovis Mills in Ramsgate

Recommended Posts

Hope so, I thought that the bridge was the worst part of the Ramsgate Mills, the rest of it seemed pretty solid??

Well it held me anyway ;)

I guess news like this brings home the fact that you have to be careful out there, regardless of the exact circumstances, one false move is all it takes.

I hope the lad is OK and my thoughts are well and truly with his family right now.

      A really nice mill with a little hidden jem.The workshop is like a time capsule worth the trip just to see this, a little history....

      Dalton Mills was once the largest textile mill in the region, employing over 2000 workers. It was built by Joseph Craven in 1869, replacing the original mill which was owned by Rachel Leach in the 1780's.
      The mill was named Dalton Mills after the manager employed by Rachel Leach, a man called Dalton.
      In its heyday between 1869 and 1877 the mill provided jobs for workers all over Keighley and the Worth Valley.
      As the textile industry declined, the fortunes of Dalton Mills changed and up until 2004, it had been virtually empty for almost a decade. John Craven, the great-great grandson of Joseph, who had built the mill, eventually chose to sell Dalton Mills to Magna Holdings, to ensure it’s survival.
      Part of the renovation of the Clock Tower has included restarting the landmark clock which has not ticked for 25 years. In the mill's heyday, thousands of workers relied on the clock to get to work on time, but the hands had not moved for a quarter of a century. Last year Magna Holdings repaired the clock, and illuminated the faces, so it can display the time to the whole of Dalton Lane again.

      I am a filmmaker and YouTuber, and i'm trying to get into Urbex. I really enjoy finding out about the history of the sites that i want to visit and exploring them with my son.
      Last week we visited a site in West Yorkshire. The site is an old fur fabrics mill and has been covered before on this forum.

      This is a first attempt at Urbex, so go easy on me!
