    Arrow Delph Mill, Sept 2007


    Cracking little explore, entrance was not easy, in fact pretty damn hard, and comedy moments from Lawrence :D































    Shots from the top of the water tower

    Wasnt too hard, climb out through a hole in the roof, up from a false wall, up the slope, back inside the tower, climb a rope, balance across the water tank and up through another hole in the roof, easy really :shock:



    This person was giving us the eye

























    Lovely switch box.

    All in all it was a cracking explore with lots of climbing to get into various parts of the place, looks like someone put alot of time into trying to secure this place, but nothing is impossible with the right people trying to gain access :D

    Looks Good, Its not very discreet though with all those people milling about... How many of you were there? Sometimes a little subtlety goes a long way.

    I visited in 2006 when we were passing though, Its great inside really intact from the old looms on the top floor to the modern 60's replacements! Theres lots of good stuff in that area to we had one day and covered 3 mills and a dye works all in one small area.

    What a beaut of a place. Those looms are great and the building's well nice. Looking at those pics made me realise how much I'm dying to get back out on some good explores! Good stuff.
    Btw, I've seen your other name Mr Mister X before. On another forum perhaps.

    Cheers :)
