    Default Langworth Mill, Notts, November 2018


    1. The History
    Langwith Mill is located to the east of the village of Nether Langwith, set back from the road on the banks of the River Poulter. The towns of Mansfield and Worksop are 8 miles to the south and 8 miles to the north respectively. The site itself comprises of Langwith Mill and Langwith Mill House. The latter is a Grade II Listed and is late 18th century and has previously been used as a restaurant (Goffs). The mill is over four storeys and was constructed in 1786 and used as a cotton mill. It was originally sixteen windows wide making it one of the largest mills in the area. The mill was powered by a large water wheel fed from a dam nearby. Cotton spinning came to an end in the late 1840s and the building was then converted into a corn mill in 1886. It was still operating after World War II. Langwith Mill itself is a "curtilage building" to the listed Mill House.

    2. The Explore
    Nothing to get too excited about. Was just passing so thought it was rude not to have a look. The place is [still] completely sealed - both mill house and mill. The state of both buildings continues to deteriorate. So again no internals but a few nice externals.

    3. The Pictures

    The Mill house:

    Note: they've even sealed the top floor windows now:

    Cheers Smiler. Just a shame I couldn't get in to see the mill workings. But then again Think this place is a bit of death trap now though!
