    Heard a rumour that Tesco have purchased Howe Bridge Mills in Atherton in their pursuit of global domination. Drove past today and there are stacks of old tyres outside that the indoor carting track seem to have cleared out. Not sure if the building is worth photographing inside but I know there are a couple of people on here who are local so they may give it a go.

    Did a little exploring on 07/04/13. Although we only went to visit the basement of this site, most of the other floors looked as if the flooring had been removed so take caution. The basement is literally pitch black as you would expect and has been mostly cleared out. The basement cuts into two halves the first half consisting of 5 rooms which was known as Atherton indoor karting. Most of these rooms had been used for the last 11 years, the second half is divided by a tunnel leading to the other side of the factory going past the room that collapsed a few decades ago causing 13 deaths. In this tunnel is the old original heating and water system, but on the other end is the more interesting rooms which have been untouched for easily 30 years+ although again take caution as most of these rooms have collapsed.

    For anyone looking, The basement and right hand side top levels (Taller half of the building) are the ones to explore.

    No security on site, although you are directly opposite a police station

    My Mrs has said cheeky chimps is definitely gone as the lease ran out so the mill stands empty. The party bus is still ongoing though :)
