    Great stuff from you two.there does appear to be more graffiti.the tiled room is lovely and was easy to miss as it was a tight squeeze in the back.its still my most favourite explore.you deffo need to go back and get the ivy covered machinery it is to dye for.sorry about the pun ha ha

    I like to go where others fear to tread.

    Scribbling is similar to carding - so a Scribbling House would have machines with big rotating drums covered in little metal pins/ hooks which drew the wool out into strands. As for the other one, I'll leave that to the innuendo merchants who'll no doubt be along shortly.
    At Tone they used Teezels on a rotating drum, fascinating bit of kit, the area around the mill is now studded with teezel clumps
