    This is my first visit to the site, and there is nothing really new from what has been already covered.

    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.

    Sadly, the building is in too much of a mess, and despite it being a listed building, it is only a matter of time before it gets knocked down to make room for more houses. this seems to be the theme across the road.:(
