    Fantastic photographs, which gave a really good feel for the place - and very well suited to mono.

    The mill looks amazing - fabulous old building, and all that iron work and those machines! I would practically kill to get in there and photograph that. Beautifully captured.

    Thanks for the feedback guys :)

    The next public viewing of the machine floor is on the 13th September, and I highly recommend getting booked on it. It's well worth the trip down and, although you don't get to see most of what's above (only the machine room), you get to see the machines run and talk to Ken.

    What beautiful cogs, machinery and arches on the ceiling!
