    I have been trawling my xternal hard drive looking for the images from my first visit here , and finally found them . I visited twice , once exploring and second doing an album cover shoot in there because of the decent grafiti , which can be seen on my intro post. I have found some good history on this place and link is posted below , however, I did actually deliver here when i was 7.5t courier in the mid 90's.
    The main body of the Mill had been locked down , I think due to problem with kids , according to archived news reports , but the sections you can see in the images are easily accessible , and many people walk their dogs along side the site.
    A photographer friend of mine went up last month , and bumped into some guys up there , apparently they had something to do with the property , and turned him away .
    I am keeping my eye on the place , as i am hoping access to the main body may become available soon.

    I did some construction work here in the early 90's.

    Some nice external shots and of the outbuildings. The mill has never been full locked down, was in there a few days ago myself.

    It's sad to see what was once a great stroll, now more or less stripped of anything of interest, look forward to seeing some internal shots :thumb

    Good to see Bailey again. You've got some nice shots despite the lack of internals. You will need a month and year of visit on the thread title :)

    Not bad really was the separate admin block sealed too tbh that was my favorite bit of this place. Please keep us posted if you hear anything more cheers.

    I visited the admin block about a month ago and was ruined. It's good to see the old girl again!

    Been in here a few times while passing, before all the machinery from the basement was removed and after

    It has a certain charm, I rather like it there, you've got some decent shots :thumb
