The site currently comprises the Springmount Mills complex. The former cotton spinning mill was constructed in the 1870s, on the site of an earlier bleach and printing works, and extended and altered in the early to mid-20th century. The roughly L-plan complex comprises three late C19 spinning mills, with warehouse and offices, built of red brick with slate or flat roofs. The 1870s mill is built of mottled red brick, partly laid in header bond, with bright red brick pilasters and details, this has a 12-bay east elevation built across the contours, and a 5-bay street elevation. The building has been lowered in height to 3 storeys, with a hipped roof to the north section. Perpendicular to this is another mill of 9 bays, also lowered to 3 storeys and with a flat roof. An early 20th century range faces Brinksway, probably a warehouse, with large 12-pane windows and brick cornice. The mill was occupied by Walthews in 1872 and was later part of Fine Cotton Spinners and Doublers.

This, mill is a two minute walk away from where I live, Ive been meaning to do it for quite some time after finding out that the carpet company, plus some sort of office funiture firm had moved out.
Time went by and other things always seemed to get in the way but having a new job and finnishing early, I now had a short pocket of time to do it before picking the kids up from School.
The photos that ive put on here were taken over the last few weeks, Ive not been back since as my camera was badly damaged in a car crash last week.

On with the pics:

One with my Old bug whilst the place was still in use..

And a selfie to finnish:

Thanks for looking.
