    Default Knoll spinning, Oldham - Feb 2008.


    Visited with Havoc.

    Can't tell you too much about this huge mill complex (I'm sure Bungle will chip in at some point ) but it's a fantastic site and one that is much ignored considering it is FIVE minutes away from Fletcher's paper mill which seems to have become one of the most documented sites in the country.

    We must have spent a good three hours mooching around the place going up and down stairways, ladders and such. I would really recommend people visit here soon as I'm sure it will be under redevelopment before long. There is even a funeral parlour in one of the roadside buildings, complete with fridges.

    Go do it folks, this place and Fletcher's would make a great day out.



























    TnM :)

    Ooh, some really nice window shots. Those floorboards look a bit dodgy!
    Huge place...nice explore.

    Cheers :)

    nice pics, the one of the keys is good, and the second to last shot looks like the derelict entrance to hell:icon_evil with the orange and red with the yellow light.
