    Default Hartford Mill, Oldham 2013



    The Visit
    Yes folks very late to the party with this one, but at long Last I got my
    backside down to this very knackered mill. Nothing left but a shell of a
    building, but I like my mills and there's some nice pillar shots to be had.

    We were also lucky with some nice sunshine which made for some nice
    light and shade shots.

    Visited with Zero81

    The History
    Well much to my surprise this mill is actually Grade II listed.

    Built 1907 by the Hartford Mill (Oldham)Co Ltd. Extended 1920 and
    1924. Closed 1959 and used by Littlewoods as a mail order warehouse
    until 1992. Architect was F W Dixon, there were 120,000 spindles
    and power was provided by a very impressive 1500 hp Urmson & Thompson engine.









































    Hmmm not my best ever pics :( and in camera HDR I think gets the thumbs down

    Most excellent young man :) Lancashire Mills provide great architectural uniformity, which in turn provides the likes of us with endless photographic opportunities ;) Your shots convey the beauty on offer

    I like this very much :) And happy 50th bud
