Hi Guys, took a few photos of this place a few weeks ago. Its only 5 mins from me so thought it was a must to have a look around even though it is wrecked!
Visted with 28dl member- Nightshadow.

History-
Built 1907 by the Hartford Mill (Oldham)Co Ltd. Extended 1920 and 1924. Closed 1959 and used by Littlewoods as a mail order warehouse until 1992. Architect was F W Dixon, there were 120,000 spindles and power was provided by a very impressive 1500 hp Urmson & Thompson engine.

Didnt dare to venture out on to this metal platform and steps as it looked very rotten. So unfortunately didnt do the roof.

Thanks for looking!
