    I was told about this place a while back, and with not having much to do, me and my cousin were rather bored. So we decided to go and check Hawkshead mill out. The access we had been told about was no longer useable so after a brief recce, we were in.
    The mill itself is pretty stripped of anything interesting, except for an old lathe and the odd artefact from it's time as a working building.

    Hawkshead mill was built in the early 1700's and was used as a textiles mill, it was later used as a munitions factory, later on in 1961 an extension to the mill was built by Lowreys of Hyde and since then it had many different uses and owners, the last of which was Flexco until they moved out in 2005. I think it is currently owned by a developer. I have no idea what the future of the site may be, but it's most probably going to get demolished.
