    Visited with Will Knot, it was a last minute thing! We both had a spare afternoon and were in the same area, so we decided to meet..

    Thanks Will for a good relaxed explore :thumb

    Some history:

    The Cellars Clough woollen mill was owned by Samuel Firth of Gatehead in Marsden, and opened in 1888. He also owned Holme Mill. By the 1960s, it was owned and run by Fisher, Firth & Co. which became Cellars Clough Woollen Mills Ltd, managed by another Firth son, in 1981. The company has now been dissolved.

    Situated just off the Huddersfield Narrow Canal, the mill’s pond is now a very popular fishing spot.

    Cellars Clough Millls had been left derelict for a number of years now until a property developer purchased the Mills in view of converting the property into apartments. A scheme for 114 apartments was created, submitted and now accepted which included on site shopping and gym facilities.

    There was also a culvert under the mill that looked really cool, but without wellies I didn't fancy an hours drive back home with wet feet.

    I'm sorry about the amount of pic's on this report, I liked all of them so much I had to share..

    Quite a building.

    I dared to climb a 9ft ladder plastered in anti vandal paint to get up to the lift motor head room.

    The old switch gear for the lift it's seen better day's if I'm honest.

    I know the saying goes "leave only foot prints" however I'd got my gloves caked in anti vandal paint so I left them there for the next explorer to use.

    And finally a bit of light painting in a darker part of the mill.
