    Double post so shoot me but had the gear for the gopro for ages now so thought why not... even though my gopro quality is appauling for a genuine gopro session. Here's some expensive camera grainy footage anyway.

    Prior to some early 1900's safety rulings, banisters were not a requirement in type of enclosed stairways as we see here. Following some serious reported falls in the years 1901 to 1904, banisters were a requirement on the descent side - normally/usually the righthand side. All those that were added to existing staircases, from examples I have seen, seem to have been made from iron gas/steam pipe and the sections joined by the standard threaded iron sleeve. Nice set of images. Sadly no...

    A very common problem with constructions like this, but nothing to do with the stream - if it was, the original building would have collapsed well before the extension was built. 'Hanging' that modern bit off the rear of the original construction has completely 'destabilised' the original foundations - If the old unit had been left to its own devises, the whole gatehouse would have moved as one unit (as it obviously did until the addition was built) with the only obvious signs being a few minor...

    Ah...man. That is a sad sight to see. My kind of venue played by my kind of bands. Great set though. P.S. should the date here "The Square finally closed its doors on 1 January 2016" read 2017? In happier times:

    It’s been a while once again since I have explored, tied up in one of many of lifes distractions… However, I am back and this time armed with a new wide angle lens! Exploring with one of my Instagram followers onethirtytwo_, great to meet a new explorer as well! So, I have had my eye on this place for quite some time and watched it open and close its doors numerous times, but noticing the boarding had finally gone up and hearing the place had closed for the final time, I took the...

    Visited early one morning with @dangle_angle. First of I must say this place is a total death trap with floors that can only be described as weetabix. And is totally stripped out. But is all natural decay no vandalism or graffitti anywhere. Didn't take many photos but here's a few I did.so on with the history and pics... Swan Meadow Mill was built by James Eckersley in 1827 and became Old Mill when a new, larger mill was built in 1838. It was demolished in 1960 followed in 1963 by the larger...
