HISTORY
The Mill was run by Mallalieu's for many years, but they went into administration in 1996. They came out of administration when they were bought by another Delph weaving company, Gledhills. However, in doing so, most of the business was transferred to Valley Mill, just up the road. Bailey Mill remained in use until about January 2000.

EXPLORE
So me and @CrazyNinjaSquirrel along with @godgp78 found this on a tour of upper mill , delph area we had a bout seven targets to visit in the day and this was number three sadly all the rest were sealed up tight and a Tesco had been built on one of them, so bailey mill was at least wide open so we hit it.
after ten minutes of looking about godgp 78 decided to wait this one out despite very easy access and although obviously trashed still offered some decent photo opportunities :wanker, anyway me and the squirrel decided to go it alone and had a bloody good mooch not much left in there the loom I was told about was no longer in situ and they bricked up the walkway which connects both buildings so the second half of the mill is gonna have to wait for a re visit but the boiler is still in place and shes massive not many dials on her tho , just a few preassure valves anyway on with some piks
