Rylands Mill Wigan

The last location on a whistle-stop tour of Wigan with Tom sherman, was this place,
and as I'm sure you'll agree it's a derp of the highest order.

History bit

Designed by George Woodhouse in 1866, Rylands Mill was built and had served the local population
for work until the overall demise of the textile industry had taken it's toll across the country.

In 1985 it became an annexe to Wigan Technical College and became better known as the Pagefield
Building until closure in 2007. The facade along the front was repointed and boasts some wonderful
brick pattern work, this mill being the most expensive around at the time it was built.
