The mill was built in 1885 as a textile mill. It was part of a complex of buildings associated with the Ball & Son Lace Factory. In its last year's it was operating as Norton plastics. The mill looks like it has been empty a few years now. Some parts had collapsed. It's fairly stripped out but was some nice interesting features still to see. I quite liked the lift cage doors still in situ. Literally a few days we went the building had a massive fire. I think it burnt it all out.
