    :D :D :D Visited with stopford_lad :D :D :D

    The second set of pictures are of me experimenting with nuts, bolts & coggs lol

    With a txt off stopford_lad asking do I want to go check somewhere out underground, I jumped at the chance, thanks mate :thumb... But with no waders to hand we had to go do somethimg dry,

    Here is some history that I stole off stopford_lad who stole it off magpie :thumb but ive added a bit more myself

    From the Industrial Revolution until the 20th century, Oldham was a major centre of textile manufacture, particularly cotton spinning. During this period, the valleys of the River Beal, River Irk, River Medlock and their tributaries were dominated by large rectangular brick-built factories, many of which still remain today as warehouses or converted for residential or retail use.

    Bailey mill in Delph was built in 3 stages, starting in 1863 with later additions in 1865 and 1871 respectively.
    The mill was owned by the Mallalieu family who were in the textile business with cotton and later
    onto wool. The firm went into administration in 1996. They came out of administration when they were bought
    by another Delph weaving company, Gledhills. However, in doing so, most of the business was transferred to
    Valley Mill, just up the road. Bailey Mill remained in use until about January 2000.

    Since that time it has remained empty and its future is uncertain. The old Delph branch line (locally known as The Delph Donkey) once ran along the front of the mill in the picture with the last passenger train running on Saturday 30 April 1955. The old track bed is now a popular recreational route to Dobcross and Uppermill.
    Although the railway infrastructure has mostly been removed, the architecture of the bridges, walls and buttresses remains.
