    Default Old Textile Mill


    Done this one with Vertigo Rod.

    The minute I stepped in this Mill I just fell in love with the place.

    Once a thriving hub of industry, the textile mill now stands abandoned but still home to hundreds of colour coordinated yarns.
    The looms have stood unused for decades and the mill’s machinery is rusting away,
    disused since 1980, the mill has been untouched and boxes of yarn lay abandoned on the floor of the building

    The amount of machinery and objects left behind is just something you don’t see every day, It’s the kind of stuff you would expect to see in a museum, it's shocking to see that the history was not being preserved, everything was just sitting there, the looms have stood unused for decades and the mill's machinery now rusts away.
    I hope they save this place and do sorting with it, it would be such a shame if this place goes to waste.

    Absolutely amazing Jon, I love mills and this has made my jaw drop!
    No one ever wins. No one finally loses, except the dead. Under the sun they rot together with absolute biological equality.

    It looks like they just went home after a days work and never turned up the following day. The belts are still attached. Nicely done though.
    When the going gets tough - the tough get going.
