    History
    (Credit to Inky for history)

    The mill buildings are considered to be of archaeological and historic interest and are included in the Greater Manchester Sites and Monuments Record (Ref MGM 3239). The mill is thought to have been constructed in the 1860s for spinning cotton and was formerly known as Trianon Mill. By the 1890’s the mill was converted to a rubber works, then back again to a textile mill. The site has been used for the manufacture of products for the food, animal feed and brewing sector until it closed in December 2003.

    A former canal basin behind the mill is also recorded on the Greater Manchester Sites and Monuments Record, Ref MGM 14973 and is thought to have been built to serve the Hall Lane Colliery, established pre 1829. The wharf was later associated with the Mill. Although the canal bank is overgrown the outline of the basin is extant and the opportunity should be investigated in conjunction with the Council and British Waterways to restore this historic feature and facility as part of any future redevelopment scheme for the Mill.

    The Visit
    Another early morning another trashed mill.This time Unity Mill in woodley, general access was fairly easy while access to the central part of the mill required some squeezing. Forgot to take some exterior photos, all in all a good wander.

    This is a great report, i just have two suggestions
    number one: is there any outside pics? (Its not really a report with out any outside pics same if you have no inside pics)
    number two: maybe spend some more time your write up, add some more history and really focus on telling us exactly what happened on your visit
    great pics tho

    Thanks for the feedback, I'll have another look through my folder but I'm fairly sure I forgot to get exterior photos, oops. I'll keep in mind the suggestions for my next report!
