    Edenwood Mill

    If you like places that have been left almost exactly as they were then this place isn't for you. The floor is falling in, the roof has collapsed in places, there's not a single remaining window...yeah.

    The mill was built in 1801 and closed sometime in 2001 - exactly 200 years after. In the early part of the last century the mill was extended and developed as a dyeing facility for Turnbull and Stockdale Ltd, to compliment their weaving, bleaching, printing and distribution activities.

    Between 1968 and 2001 Edenwood was solely used as a specialist hand block printing unit.

    Yet again I forgot my tripod so I had to make do with either balancing my camera on my knee or trying to keep my hands steady as I took a handheld shot. Some came out better than others to say the least.

    I visited this place twice with two different groups due to access being so simple. It seems since it's closure in 2001 - that's 14 years ago(!) - it has just been forgotten about.

    There were plans to convert the site into apartment blocks or at least to demolish it to make way for new houses, but there is no sign of that happening any time soon.

    [​IMG]

    There was a fair few bits of graffiti dotted around, from the usual tags to some druggie's deranged scribblings to Mickey Mouse's dismembered head. It was certainly an odd mix.

    Parts of the mill had been gutted due to various fires, and the floors here were even worse than those that had fallen through already. The hardest thing about this place was working out where to put your feet!

    'If you like places that have been left almost exactly as they were then this place isn't for you. The floor is falling in, the roof has collapsed in places, there's not a single remaining window...yeah' - that comment amused me more than it perhaps should have done for some reason :D A good way to begin though :thumb Sometimes I like these shells. Even if there isn't much in them, sometimes they can be quite photogenic.

    Liking your shots mate. You did well considering you didn't have a tripod.
