    Report - Cellars Clough Mill, Marsden, June 2018

    A fascinating site, located in Marsden, I really enjoyed walking through this cotton mill, believed to be shut in the 80's. The amount of bat's here was incredible, they flew around you in big packs like watching a flock of birds. Overall not much is originally left anymore except a few bits...
