    First visit to Hatford Mill, short and sweet visit! Very empty...


    History:
    Built in 1907 to the design of F.W.Dixon, this is one of the few mills in Oldham to have listed building status, being a Grade II listed building. The mill was extended during its operational years in 1920 and again in 1924. Power was provided by a 1500hp Urmson & Thompson steam engine, capable of driving 120,000 spindles. It closed its doors in 1959. In later years it was used as a mail order warehouse by Littlewoods until 1992. The mill has been abandoned since and has been stripped of anything of any worth.​

    The shots!
