Big thanks to Bungle for the heads up on this.

Built 1906, Fernhurst is a typical example of the mass of cotton mills that grace the skyline of Oldham. Sadly the town don't seem to have an interest in preserving the mills that have survived this long, and for two or three years I have been ticking them off the list one by one.

The engine hall was the main event here, being one of the best I have seen. Stunning minton tiles on every surface, along with the wheel and rope race remaining untouched and uncovered over. It was not hard at all to work out what would have gone where in days of steam.

In one small room we found the original drawings for the mill and engine hall, and those filled in the gaps to understand exactly what was what.

Mill was fairly empty and we had a couple of close calls with workers being in the next room to us, but we made it round the whole place undetected. Another cracking explore on the 11th hour of the site, which is fast becoming the norm in Oldham!
