This was my first exploration and I am glad to say i thoroughly enjoyed it.

The day started with me and a few friends, all first timers venturing into tone mill. As soon as we arrived we were greeted by another explorer and that really put us at ease! thanks!

This location was packed with machinery but i was more interested in finding the little gems hidden in and around the work shops.

Feel free to leave me some feed back on my report as i'm a new timer and would appreciate the help thanks.

History
Tone Mill which was part of two mills located in rural town of Wellington. In its day, the factory was comprised of a reservoir and sluice gates, a dye-house, a finishing works with engine house and integral water wheel chamber, and two boiler houses. From a variety of sources i believe that the mill was active from 1830's up until the early 1990's. Owned by Fox Brothers.
