    Smile Hermitage Mill, Mansfield - December 2012


    Hermitage Cotton Mill, Mansfield - December 2012

    A splendid morning looking around the old mill with Skankypants. Still has loads of original features considering its recent history at the hands of a builder merchant! Its rickety as all hell though with lots of soggy floors and sheer drops in dark corridors so the torch came in well handy.

    A big thanks to Skankypants for the tip off and coming along, if he hadn't its very likely I would have missed the way in and gone home empty handed... cheers mate!

    It was a cold, damp foggy morning so the light was not great... and typically a few hours after we left there was glorious sunshine.

    History

    Hermitage Mill is a Grade II Listed Building, located to the west of Hermitage Lane, Mansfield and dates from 1803-04. The Mill has served both the textile and hosiery industries, and since the 1950s, the building industry.

    The current occupiers of the mill, a builders merchant, are due to relocate their business in the near future which gives an opportunity to consider the future of a relatively complete mill building that helps interpret Mansfield’s textile and hosiery history.

    The Mill is in good condition considering its age, although it is partially obscured by later additions which detract from its appearance. The sensitive removal of these buildings would enhance the Mill and is to be encouraged.

    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?
