I hope this isn't overkill - there have been quite a few reports of this place, and I did one myself a couple of years ago. I don’t often do revisits, but I really liked it here when I first went. So when I heard that more of it was now accessible I took the opportunity to have a steady wander round and get a few 35mm film shots. It was much more smashed up than it had been two years ago, but was nice to see some additional bits - even if the machinery was long gone.
A Brief History (copied from my original report...)
'A large mill complex set amidst rural scenery. A water powered mill was first built here by the Moorhouses of New Mill in the 1830’s/40’s. Little remains of this, although the large dam still exists behind the site. Was rebuilt (probably c1870) – three storey main building with small, square tower. Number of late 19C/early 20C additions and separate buildings (including weaving shed). Square stone chimney built into part of the mill. Above this older part is a collection of large, mostly 20C industrial buildings – some designed like weaving sheds.'
Although parts of the mill were being used by other businesses until recently these have now vacated.

And a few bonus film shots from the culvert underneath:
And that's it - I promise not to post any more reports of this place! ;-)
