Went along with Over and Stoka, ive been here before but not got in to the main building! but this time i did resulting in a glass cut to the leg! luckily Over had a first aid kit, which ment i was stood on the roof of the mill with my pants round my ankles dressing the cut! :)

History:- (from andyms report :)) Penwortham Mills, just to the south of Preston, Lancashire, was home to Vernon-Carus since 1915. It was a major manufacturer of surgical lint, which was the first surgical dressing to be commercially manufactured in the UK. When it was founded, Lancashire was the world’s centre for weaving and fabric production.

The mills were closed in 2006 after the company relocated to brand new premises on the Matrix Business Park near Leyland. Most of the equipment was taken with them, and the remaining stuff was inaccessible at the time of my visit.
