    Default Oakwood Mill Return 0313 Millbrook Manchester


    I was last here a year ago and have returned on another cold day to find access to the main building! It was sealed last year!
    Built in 1851 as a cotton mill but has had many other tenants since the loom boom died down; It has held prisoners of war, precise engineering and bleaching - until 1961! Since then it has been left due to a Grade 2 listing.
    A bit dodgy in places to say the least!

    Below!






    It eats chavs!






    Kiln?




    Engine room extension. Added to the main building in 1908.


    Upper floor.


    Twin entrances to a shaft.


    Missing top floor and clock tower.


    Long shot

    Interesting report, cheers.
    Why go through a door when there's a perfectly good window?
