Not much history on this one. It was once a silk spinners and then when they moved out was something to do with shot blasting which is why there was some stuff relating to that in the woods nearby. The mill had 4 storeys at one end and 5 at the other. On 29th January 1909, the mill – then occupied by J. Cheetham & Sons Limited – was destroyed by fire which started in the drying room.

It was used to recondition washing machines up to 1975, my grandad owned it and subsequently owned by my family, used to have a lot more stuff in but scrap lads stole it and walls kept falling down so we took what we could out
