View from inside an old Lancashire Mill Ramsbottom
Old abandoned Mill Ramsbottom.
The old Hippodrome in a forgotten corner of Ashton-under-Lyne.
Night photograph of an old Bury Barn, I liked the yellow glow of the street lights of Bury against the night stars.
The Lancashire Bus Graveyard – this historic Bus has reached the end of the Road, quite literally. Glad to be able to have take a photograph of something we all take for granted in everyday life.

Old Suitcases – Old Secrets to tell….
I Love old suitcases, it is a place where people hold on to dear memories. Fun family holidays, moving house and documents that follow Births, Marriages and Deaths…….and Secrets..
Over the years I have been watching this sad decline of Edenwood Mill in Ramsbottom but this last week not a lot looked left of the roof.
Edenwood Mill was a Cotton and dyeing Mill constructed in 1801 and was part of a series of mills in the Rossendale valley. In the later years of its life 1968 it produced specialist block printing.
Reflecting back on the North of England’s Cotton production. One of the last jobs for this mill was as a suit manufacturer in the 1970’s through until the 1980’s when all production stopped…!
When you see photographs of Cotton Manufacturing in the North of England you either see historic images of how things were or the contrast of urban dereliction on one of the Urbexing websites with dust forming on Britain’s forgotten and lost History. This is the closest I could get to how life may have looked for that particular cloth manufacturer who had hung up this personal mirror maybe to check how there hair looks or may they checked the view over there shoulder?
