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.

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.

Quarry Sculpture





Part of a series of sculptures at Lee Quarry in Bacup, part of the Rossendales valleys of Stone series. This sculpture is called Ferro-terrasaurus and was inspired by industrial Machinery created by Robin Dobson. Photographed on a Moody day the rust and cloud really add to the presence on the hillside.

Flowers for the Abandoned

flowers for the abandoned

Urban exploration of an abandoned and derelict House in the Rossendale Valley Lancashire. The flowers I picked from the gardens arranged in vase on a table that was there, the only piece of furniture.

This image was of a series of Photographs that I took in this position, strangely when I arrived home there appeared a ghostly image to the left of the table that even today remains totally unexplained…
