    Royd Mill, Oldham

    Please don't adjust your mince pies, the forum isn't broken again :p:

    That said its rare I stray from drains, but the occasional bit of 'erritage never did any harm now did it ?

    I do have a soft spot for local cotton mills. These pics are quite old now and surfaced whilst I was rummaging through a pile of back log (excuse the pun)

    An easy enough explore at the time, I nipped in the main gate and continued to grab some pics as it was the only real chance I had before it was pulled down

    I'd almost finished with the place when I was busted nipping into the boiler room, the lads were sound and asked me if I knew someone who fitted the description of Bnugle

    Unbeknown to me, him and Medno had poked about here a couple of days before, I left the lads to finish their joint whilst I took a couple more snaps and left them alone to break shit

    Canteen, I expect this is where Bnugle spent most of his time whilst Medno bothered with pics :p:

    I took this pic for Dweeb, just to show that pipes and valves do exist in these places :D

    Part of the wall was covered in beer mats dating back to the 70's

    No mill is complete without it's engine house, always full of win as a rule, this one no exception despite being stripped

    Boiler House, sadly the original boilers were long gone :(

    ..Replaced with some modern day crap

    Naturally I spent a bit of time on the roof taking in the views of an area I once lived

    Still some evidence of King Cotton, although no textile work takes place these days, with the majority being used for storage and mail order firms etc :(

    Love the beermat wall, I had one myself and that conveyor looks fantastic, I know that you probably did but I am surprised not to see you hanging of the chimney stack :)

    Millage. Had a funny run in one early morning with one of the occupants here with host whilst it was still in use.
    Some nice plans left in the engine house too if you found them ?

    They pulled this down, jeez. Those beer mats would have been worth a small fortune I guess.

    haha, I bumped into him here, on the way out, he'd had permission and was in the engine house as I was leaving the boiler room
