So next, Mookie and I start our tour up North. We basically had 2 days of failure with only 2 successful explores to about 10 ish locations and about 250 miles of driving. It was pretty downing. We decided to retreat to our hotel.

The next morning we went straight to this gem. A lot of it is derped but it has some beautiful features in place, and the weather was very much on our side.

The original mill was built in 1868 on land which was purchased from Rawdon Baptist Church.

A clothier who lived in Little London, Thomas Pratt, was the owner of the site. Cloth was produced here until a terrible fire in 1906 which totally gutted most of the building. Scribbling and spinning machinery was totalle; but the weaving shed was not too badly damaged, the cost of the damage was £20,000. The fire left 300 workers unemployed.

The mill was rebuilt and became a Dye House. The management buy out only got the
dye works operational till its final closure in 2010
