Edenwood Mill Ramsbottom


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.

Ramsbottom’s Station Garage


Ramsbottom is one of the many stops on the East Lancashire Railway, anyone visiting Ramsbottom will have not missed “Station Garage” a family business of the Dawson for 40 years right next to the Railway pub.

This photograph was taken over a long exposure that captured the sun setting and a moon rise that I removed. I love in winter how the early evening creates a dramatic backdrop of trades and workers finishing the last hours of work.

No Trains at Ramsbottom


Ramsbottom is one of the many pretty villages that you pass as the steam train trails up the Rossendale Valley. Over the winter months the East Lancashire Railway restricts the steam trains to only running over the weekends, so today being midweek it was quite safe to photograph the rail tracks as there were no trains!

This photograph was taken using a long exposure on a tripod to prevent any blurring, complete with wooly hat and gloves to stay warm.
