    Default Bamber Bridge Cotton Mill : Feb 2013


    You know how it goes when on missions some you lose some you win, Ssshhh... had to work one weekend a few back and Luckypants was in town so off we went at the crack of dawn for some serious slice of EPIC but our window of opportunity was closed, literally, we were gutted especially when we'd got up at 4.30 am and so it went on a weekend of fails we had to do something , I think Luckypants had left his pants of luck at home...so here anyway is plan Z a beat up old circa 1904 cotton mill and this took long enough to get in.


    Du Dooooo.....



    Not much light on the ground floors





    More light and more damp up a level



    each floor pretty similar , the artefacts of a bygone age have mostly been spirited away



    its a quite a relaxed mooch in here the big expanses are quite relaxing and we feel far from the madding crowd



    Whats left of an office



    we need to go further up I want to see the whole world



    Top of the lift shaft , if am remembering right



    Only lit from natural light below made this room pretty spesh, like some kind of underlit pool



    to the heights and howling wind



    The best thing about mills for me , theres always a nice view at the top of em



    All the doors around the tower have little walls infront to avert disaster cept one..DEATHDOOR!



    Onto the roof for some last min shots and we off...



    Whilst here i imagined the rush of jumping off the roof, i always think this at high places, they fill me with fear but theres always that , what if you jumped off thing going on and how game over that is, so i did this little video to illustrate the strangeness

    Very atmospheric. Lovely.
    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?
