I have been meaning to actually post a report for ages but life seems to have gotten in the way. This is my first ever report so I’ve played it safe to some extent and I appreciate this location been done before but I thought it might be worthwhile posting to document the transition between then and now. Langwith Mill is an old derelict cotton mill near Nether Langwith in Nottinghamshire.

The mill is a four storey cotton mill built in 1786, originally sixteen windows wide, which would have been one of the largest mills in the district. Cotton spinning ceased around 1848 and the building was converted into a corn mill in 1886 and which was still operating after WW2. It is built in limestone with a slate roof now holed and in poor condition. The Mill was powered from a large water wheel fed from a dam nearby which is now a meadow. Langwith Mill is a curtilage building to the Grade II listed Langwith Mill House and a building of Local Interest in its own right.

The limestone building is currently in quite a bad state of disrepair and the large holes in the slate roof are clearly contributing to the decay of the hard wood timber internal framework.

The Mill was powered from a large water wheel fed from a dam nearby which is now a meadow.

Next to the mill is the ‘Mill house’ which was converted into a restaurant, But this has been shut down and apparently hammered by thieves.

I notice that since the previous report, every window on the first two floors have been boarded, making the site (almost) secure and more braces have been placed in on the ground floor.
I visited in Dec 2014 which kind of shows how far behind I am. The photos do not fully document the location but it was a pretty impromptu visit….

3rd Floor.

At this point the floor is clearly unsafe due to the degradation of the wood.. Maximum ghost stepping required...

Some of the most interesting remaining machinery was located on the top floor,
