    Number 3 on mine and Muttley's super soaraway Sunday hitlist was Viyella / Radford Mills in Nottingham, thanks once again to Lolz for the heads up. It was massively fucking windy and the pigeons here were going absolutely crazy....

    Radford mill has stood on the Garden St. site for over 150 years, initially used as a spinning mill it was carved up and extended from around 1890 onwards. Construction varies throughout the buildings with bridge links spanning the void between the older and newer parts.

    The larger, more prominent 1900 extension (with the Viyella tower) appears to have had some fairly hefty and recent telecommunications equipment installed meaning it was inaccessible and well monitored.

    These little well researched snippits of history are nicked from Layz's most excellent report:

    Here are some shots:
