    I spotted this building on Google Earth after scanning the nearby Barnes hospital!

    I went down to find most of it gone and work beginning but still went for a sneaky mooch. This was actually my second ever Explore and just had a Sony Point and Shoot in those days! I was nearly spotted and had to duck and dive!

    The buzz of this hobby was born and the rest is history!

    Industry has been on this plot since the 12th century! Situated next to a stream, it was a water powered mill that ground corn to extract its' oil. Later on it was used to produce bleach and chlorine for the lucrative dye industry under the ownership of Thor chemicals! What a cool name!

    It closed in 1993 and there it stood decaying until 2008 when it was redeveloped for houses! So I got there just in time!


    View from across the stream!
