As I was back in Devon visiting the parents for the weekend, I thought it would be rude if I didn't fit in some exploring time too :D.

The history of the mill was covered pretty comprehensively in Collingwood's report from January, so those of you who are interested can read it there :).


As for the future of the site:
The town council has received a planning application for 59 residential units to be developed on the former woollen mill site, which would involve interior and exterior alterations to the Grade II listed mill building.
The proposal is for the erection of 40 new residential units, the conversion of the mill and an adjacent building to an additional 19 residential units, and the redevelopment of another building for community use, possibly as a nursery or gallery.
(http://www.okehampton-today.co.uk/News.cfm?id=3893&headline=Wool mill plans go under the spotlight. February 2011.)
However, these plans were rejected by West Devon Borough Council in April, so who knows what's going to happen!

Time for the pics!
