    Another of Oldham's historic buildings is going to be demolished; soon Oldham will be just glass, steel and Wiggett's Construction town houses.

    It was once a great explore, even now with the machinery gone makes an enjoyable stroll and.a stunning structure. Another one to catch fire soon I bet, just like the nearby W H Shaws.

    Add Hartford Mill, Durban Mill and W H Shaws to the list if you want to see them too before they are demolished.

    I can only agree with you @The Lone Ranger Ironically it"s taken me 2 years to visit Hartford a few weeks ago (and that was by mistake) i enjoyed it very much as i prefer a Derp Mill to a Littlewoods distribution centre :)

    So they're knocking a down a building that's been there for 200 years, to built apartments. Apartments? In Delph? They won't be able to give them away. They should convert the mill.

    A couple of local mills have successfully been converted into apartments, at least the building remains. Demand would be high I'd have thought.
