Hartford Mill
(Once again visiting well visited, repeat places)


Hartford Mill was built 1907 by the Hartford Mill (Oldham)Co Ltd.

It was extended 1920 and 1924 and closed 1959 In later years it was used by Littlewoods as a mail order warehouse until 1992.

The mill’s Architect was F W Dixon, there were 120,000 spindles and power was provided by a very impressive 1500 hp Urmson & Thompson engine.
I first visited Hartford going on for a year and a half ago, my std exploring partner said he had not been before and was going to pop in, so I decided to tag along to see what had changed....nothing much to be honest.

No shots from the engine house this time as we had other places to get to and I could not be bothered with the climb over the wall to get in there.
