A pair of utterly shagged former mills in Brimscombe just south of Stroud from the other day, popped into on the way past. I don't think either of these have been covered before though so I took a few photos of them for reference if nothing else.

The first one, Brimscombe Mill, is sadly almost entirely bricked up save for what were the old weaving sheds. A former cloth weaving mill that was split up into multiple separate units after cloth production stopped.









A hop and a skip down the road is the somewhat ominously named Dark Mill, which in later life housed a company called GB Electronics. It had a varied life producing all manner of things including gun felt, a dyeworks, a saw mill, and for manufacturing umbrella sticks. In 1903 it was acquired by Critchley Bros. who owned the huge, sadly now demolished, Wimberley Mills site opposite and the building was used to manufacture knitting needles and crochet hooks. New buildings were constructed in the 1950s and 1960s and sadly this meant the original early 19th Century stone mill buildings were torn down in 1964.

Whats left is an absolutely fucked, gutted, ruined shell. It's one of very few places I've been that has had nothing in the way of interest or redeeming features.

Proper fucked aint they. Thats the problem with the Stroud mills they're either so far gone its not even worth a nose or tighter than a nuns chuff.
Indeed! Ham Mill still looks enticing though, haven't seen anything from that place in years but it's still there and possibly up for sale I believe.

Nothing special sadly was out yesterday as rained of and decided to go for a walk .
this mine shut in 1921 and access is still lost which is very sad , as the mine grew to it’s full size and reached their boundary line on their retreat they started removing all the roof supports technically name is pillar / pillar robbing also they removed the ribs in some of the tunnels “ side of the tunnel wall which you would walk in “ here is some Photos of the destruction caused at the surface from 45ft below ground so not deep Normally around here we are 90-115ft underground.

@Scoobysrt ye they don’t always do it as it’s very dangerous , it’s just to gain maximum material even more dangerous if you go inside them now as the ceilings are just floating on very little and it makes it very maze like they still confuse me inside, once pillars have been removed their is very little points of reference not a place for the inexperienced You need to be quite mad to enter
