I was in Mansfield collecting something I found on gumtree, I thought it would be a waist to just go straight home so some Urbex was in order. First we tried Mansfield General Hospital, but without going into too much detail there were just too many problems so it was off to the second choice
There is a lot to see in this place, but I didn’t get to see it all because the higher you go the more unstable it is, still well worth a visit though

Langwith 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 was still operating after WW2. It is built in limestone with a slate roof. The mill is in a poor state of repair, and is on the Buildings at Risk Register. 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. Sadly it is now closed and the building falling into disrepair. A large garden at the rear is slowly turning back to nature with a large pond.
