    History


    Our Visit

    After seeing a report done on this place by clebby in August of last year, XTheRoseRedx and myself thought as we were in the area it might be worth checking it out. We were originally planning on visiting the old aerodrome nearby, but decided against it once we got there and saw the derelict parts were surrounded by the... not so much, and we didn't think our stealth levels would've been high enough for that one.

    We arrived in the already fading light, and ended up parking outside the mill to save time, which didn't seem to pose any problems for us or the neighbours.

    As mentioned in the other report, creativity was definitely needed to access the upper floor, but was well worth it to see some of the old machinery still stored there.

    The quality of my photos are starting to diminish as the light goes. But I had a bit of a thing about this room, it had so much character with the low sloping ceiling, and the beautiful old wooden beams that hold so much history.

    We didn't get many pictures of the actual engine room, as it was too dark to deem safe to make our way down, which was a huge shame, so another visit may be on the cards in the near future. Considering the disappointment of the aerodrome we were lucky to be able to visit this little gem.​

    Yes, had a look at it a few weeks ago as its a few miles from me while I was on the way to somewhere else, unfortunately the builders have moved in and so any visit would be need to be well outside of working hours. Also place looked pretty tight. YMMV though.

    There is a small mine (very small) within 100m of it which is worth having a quick look if youre passing through.
