Trouble at Mill I

Sad to see so many of these fine buildings derelict, but they do make a good subject, near Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire.

Very interesting subject for sure - especially with that tree growing out of the tower! smile
John Prior: Yes indeed, I find industrial buildings and their history fascinating.

Yikes - call the chimney sweep!

It would be a tragedy if these sorts of places were allowed to fall down: the whole area would lose part of its character
John Prior: Many have, this was used until quite recently as a factory outlet, on the other side a stone has 1991 on it where an addition was added or a restoration carried out.

That looks very quirky, Well spotted John. I hate to think what future damage those tree roots might do,.
John Prior: Another tree in tomorrows post, nature quickly reclaims.
The chimney tree certainly adds another dimension and makes you wonder how it got there!
John Prior: Nature quickly takes over

Nature seems to be taking over
John Prior: Nature always wins in the end
The tree at the top of the tower makes this shot!
John Prior: Thanks Mary, I thought so also.
Great find John, the chimney tree is most unusual.
John Prior: The next post also has a tree growing out of the building, nature quickly reclaims it seems.
What a lovely old building! I was assuming this was water powered, but with that chimney I'm guessing steam powered?
John Prior: Both perhaps, steam at a later date perhaps.
Very nice shot. This mill has obviously seen better days.
John Prior: Thanks David, sad to see these buildings not put to good use.
