Very Brief History:
Originally built in 1829 as a mill. Dobroyd Ltd was founded within the mill in 1919. The mill then closed in 1974. It then re-opened in 1976 under John Woodhead Ltd spinners. Until recent years it housed several small almost 'pop-up' businesses (pictured) including a classic car restoration firm (pictured - an old Rolls Royce car chassis).

Currently owned by 'Z Hinchliffe and Sons' who won planning permission to demolish two small sections of the complex in 2012. (During our explore we visibly saw large areas being demolished, diggers, skips etc.) An inspector from English Heritage (2012) decided the mill was not suitable for the List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest.

It's definitely one of the largest explores we have done, we must've spent 3-4 hours there and kept running into new stuff - definitely worth a look, but can be difficult to get into!

It was a true shame to see such a beautiful building in a state of abandonment, but I'll leave the photos to do the talking from here;

I had a quick look a few weeks ago and it’s so wide open now almost every window smashed total wreck now.
When we went it was all boarded up with a big fence around it, almost didn't get in until we found a tiny open window.
