    Default Reins Mill, Honley Feb 2016


    For once the name of the location was apt as it was absolutely pissing it down when me and Landie Man rolled up here having been tipped off to it by another member. Access was fairly straightforward but a bit of a squeeze and we spent about an hour or so here in the peace and quiet with only the rain for company (if you ignore the businesses operating out of the converted weaving sheds on the roadside that is).

    I went around it once with my usual 10-20mm wide angle and then again with my 30mm prime so there will be some of those shots on the end of the post.

    There isn't much information forthcoming about this old three-storey mill but it once wove and produced rugs and carpets and is a very pleasant wander if you're in the area.
