Crimble mill was built in the 19th century, is a grade II listed building and has been given a category C priority by English Heritage, in January 1995 Rochdale Council’s own buildings at risk register also classified the mill’s condition as “poor”.
The original cotton mill was built in c1829 for Charles Stott. The land was owned by the Kenyon family in 1761 who had a water powered fulling mill on the site. Charles Stott built the present mill for cotton spinning and in the 1850s it was converted to the latest invention steam power.
In 1859 the Kenyons bought the mill back. The site is special for the continuity of occupation by the Kenyon firm.Following the cotton famine (4 years) when supplies of raw cotton were not available due to the American Civil War, the mill was converted into an integrated woollen plant. In 1924 a detached engine and boiler house were built.
In 1970 the Kenyons left and the premises were taken over by Roeacre Dyeing and Spinning. It then became a bleach works.

I like that a lot - seems like most of the trashing has been done by nature. That little tree coming up through the floorboards is cool.
