UK Gleadells Mill, Kirton, May 2015

Recommended Posts

Recently moving into the area ive been finding some great little treasures, this is pretty much on my door step. Spotted at night whilst on way back from a night/star shoot and went back in day for a recce. I believe this has never been done so wasn't very hopeful. Looked well sealed, with metal sheets and a monitored system mmhh! One morning see me do a solo trip down road. I found a tricky entry point and in. The bottom floor is monitored with flashy red lights, quick exit and home to bathe in my success :o

Constructed in 1897 with giant oak king post roof trusses, galleried landing and oak beamed floors with about 8,000 sq.ft. on each floor.

Gordon Tulley bought the Gleadells Mill site around ten years ago, but has struggled to find private investors to back his project.

He had previously planned to transform the derelict mill into modern apartments, but adjusted the plans to suit the demand for housing.

Mr Tulley wanted to demolish the building to make space for 45 to 50 homes as part of a £4 million project to rejuvenate the area.

The 'To be demolished' notice refers only to the sheds built of sheeting. The brick-built block has planning consent for conversion to residential use.

Recently sold to a Doncaster based developer Hannabal Riley, he is seeking approval from North Lincolnshire Council to pull down the mill, he told planners he intends to clear the site and leave it vacant until a decision is made on its future use. The 117-year-old North Lincolnshire farm mill now looks set to be demolished to make way for new homes.

The move comes ten years after plans from a Gainsborough-based developer were approved to renovate the mill for use as 55 residential apartments, 11 garages and five offices. This was only reported a few months ago, so this year may see the end for Gleadell's Mill.

Time will tell.

There is not a lot to see in here but its in great condition, id describe it as a mini bass maltings ;)

Beautiful little spot, I love these small mills/malthouses. The similar one in Sileby is now being converted into whatever it is they are doing with it.

Thanks guys, nice little local explore in great condition, not a lot inside. Can't find any old pictures or major info on the place, not seen any reports from here either.

Im glad the 2012 plans to demolish the Mill were refused and can see it has been re sold by the developers this year.

Can only hope the new buyers have more sympathetic plans for the place.

I guess only time will tell?

Oh just seen plans approved for apartment conversion of the Mill.

It was built in 1897 and additional storage sheds in 1950.

Nice find and good to see. :thumb

      Snowdown was the deepest colliery in Kent reaching well over 3,000 ft (915 metres). It was also the hottest and most humid pit in Kent and was given the name 'Dante's Inferno' by the miners. Regarded by many as the worst pit to work at in Britain, most Snowdown miners worked naked because clothes became too uncomfortable. The miners could consume around 24 pints (14 lires) of water in an 8-hour shift. There were frequent cases of heat stroke.

      Snowdown closed in 1987

      What's left of the south marston hotel, remains an empty, scorched shell. Not much to see on this one, and I am way to late but hey, it still provides an eerie vibe. And the photos came out pretty good too. Thanks,

      Predannack opened in 1941 as an RAF base, but today is the satellite airfield to RNAS Culdrose - it is a restricted MOD site and an active airfield used daily for flying training and also provides our Fire Fighting training facility. The area is heavily utilised by Culdrose helicopter squadrons, light fixed wing aircraft and, on an occasional basis by other aircraft types including jet aircraft, for a variety of reasons. Predominantly crews are involved in intensive training sorties involving a high cockpit workload. On average there is in excess of 2000 aircraft moves a month at the unit. The airfield is also used by the Fire Training School for live fire fighting and rescue instruction/exercises and there is also a rifle range at Predannack which is frequently used for live weapon firings. Additionally the airfield is used for a variety of additional tasks when the Control Tower is unmanned e.g. gliding.

      After hearing about the permanent closure of this well known super store giant, we felt like a part of our childhood was gone forever.
      In the store we visited, we found the names of those loyal workers written on the wall with one of those people having  worked there for 20 years,
      but unfortunately we couldn't go back and get a photo due to my camera running out of juice.
      But all is not lost as there is a full video on my friend's youtube channel so check it out!

      Here are the best photos we managed to get, thanks for looking.
