    Default Ancoats mills.


    I finally found a way in and did some exploring. It's one of the many mills in Ancoats.
    This was a smaller building adjoining the main one, I wanted to go into the main building but it was dark and dodgy looking so I'll wait till I have companions with me before I do.

    Outside!

    I don't think I'd visit a mill in Ancoats on me own, not with a camera in tow. Nice one, fella.

    TnM :)

    I love the shot through the hole. The ladders to it were a surprise!

    I remember doing this mill last year on a Manchester Meet, absolutely full of needles, tin foil and other druggie parahenalia, and someone living in the stairwell. A horrible place.
