      Rylands Mill - Pagefield College campus - Video Report - Feb 2018
       
      I must admit guys this place is one of my favorite explores up to now, from researching the history to seeing just how dilapidated it has become. It truly was a marvel for the eyes.

      Rylans mill or page field as it was later known, was built for Manchester's first millionaire John Rylands in 1866/7. The mill was later taken over by Wigan technological college and became known as Pagefield campus.

      There have been numerous fires on the premises since its closure sadly destroying some of the remaining beauty of the place, but also creating a different kind at the same time.

      There was also a network of bunkers below the mill which had unfortunately been sealed off due to the danger to the local youth.


      Hope this video report meets the standards for the sight, any feedback greatly appreciated as I just want to share my experiences with you guys not start selling caps and tee shirts and begging you to subscribe thanks.

      Hope the photo file sizes are good as I had to reduce them due to the cap.
       
      Brockmill first began operations around the mid-1700s and further expanded when the Earl of Balcarres bought the mill and built a furnace at Haigh foundry half a mile downstream.
       
      The two sights prospered building large steam cylinders and fire engines also building the first locomotive for Lancashire, and plenty more to follow.
       
      Later the mill expanded into brick and textile making, however, the works closed in 1885 more recently the mill was used for the production of herbal medicine
       
      Unfortunately, i  found no date as to when production stopped
      I'm sure you'll agree though guy's it's a wonderful explore in a serene location.
