    Default Oakwood Mill, Stalybridge - March 08


    Reaperman visited here not long ago and seeing his pics reminded me that I still hadn't got round to doing it. So, upon waking up to beautiful blue skies I headed over to Stalybridge, instead of heading to my office (far too nice to work).

    Once inside I was confronted by an absolute wreck of a building, still full of character though, with some nice touches here and there. The former cotton mill has been empty for as long as I've been aware of its location (about 6 years) and there is surprisingly little on the net about it, one of its last incarnations was as Dukinfield Bleaching Company.

    It has suffered at the hands of vandals and been ravaged by fire in places, random holes in the floor all added up to good, clean, filthy fun. lol






    Love these tiles...






    Waited ages for the lift...


    ..'cos I didn't fancy the stairs..


    Ms Studding? Never heard of her.






    I enjoyed it, made for a nice relaxed mooch. And I was getting paid, a double win!! lol



    TnM :)
