    Unfortunatly after the visit to my home town months later this article came out http://www.manchestereveningnews.co...ckport-spate-fires-vandalism-derelict-7265059

    But heres a report on the place before it gets knocked down and refurbed.

    Elisabeth Mill is positioned towards the north-eastern corner of the site, and is a four storey red brick mill dating from 1874 that is locally listed. The Friedland building is of a similar scale but is a concrete structure dating from the 1980s and located towards the south-western corner of the site. There is also a temporary single storey contractor/ marketing building towards the western boundary of the site.
    To the north is Victoria Mill which forms part of the same mill complex as Elisabeth Mill, and this mill building has already been converted to flats.

    Elisabeth Mill was constructed by Sir William Henry Houldsworth who built most of Reddish. Designed by the renewed architects A.H Stott & Sons of Oldham the uniquely arranged mill is constructed in an L-shaped layout, not too the conventional ‘double mill’ concept. Cotton spinning remained on the its until 1858, when the mills were closed, since then the mill has had several industrial uses until operations cease in 2003.

    Friedland Mill, is a vast concrete structure as mentioned and was owned by V. & E. Friedland who became the world's largest manufacture of doorbells. Unfortunatly i cant see to find out much about Friedland Mill, i have heard of people it use to be an electrical mill however not much exists in as far as history goes.

    Nice one :thumb Pleased that you posted a report up after saying you'd go and do something. Surprising, but the number of new members giving it large saying they're going to do this and that, then don't offer anything up.

    Nice collection of pictures. The rooftop picture fooled me also!

    Well, you missed out on an opportunity to get yourself fully accepted around here. Next time, we require naked paddling shots from the rooftop pool :D

    Get yourself over to the Page 3 Shots section and see how it's done :eek:
