Another of Oldham's historic buildings is going to be demolished; soon Oldham will be just glass, steel and Wiggett's Construction town houses.

It was once a great explore, even now with the machinery gone makes an enjoyable stroll and.a stunning structure. Another one to catch fire soon I bet, just like the nearby W H Shaws.

Add Hartford Mill, Durban Mill and W H Shaws to the list if you want to see them too before they are demolished.

So they're knocking a down a building that's been there for 200 years, to built apartments. Apartments? In Delph? They won't be able to give them away. They should convert the mill.

The Ancient Monuments Society, the Victorian Society, the 20th Century Society, and the Council for British Archaeology all object to to demolition.

Councillor Nikki Kirkham, who opposes demolition, believes the mill could be successfully converted into apartments: “There’s an historic importance to the building. There is a sound external structure, there is no need to demolish it.”

A couple of local mills have successfully been converted into apartments, at least the building remains. Demand would be high I'd have thought.
