i like your treatment of skies, as usual. the difference in the bricks of the walled up windows and the stone work grabs my eyes
John Prior: Thanks Ayush
This was quite the structure years ago John... i also noticed the bricked up windows and the entrance...

there is a wonderful landscape behind the village....petersmile
John Prior: Yes it is a lovely, the inspiration for a lot of work by the late poet laureate and children's writer Ted Hughes, who was born and raised in Mytholmroyd

Dont know how you do it mate but you can make a derelict building so attractive by how you frame the surroundings
John Prior: The stone work of these mills is very pleasing, even during removal, sad that a new life can not be found for the buildings, perhaps rather short sighted really.

Another feature of the laandscape vanishes - a pity. Don't tell me..next year a new Tesco will be in its place
John Prior: I don't know the intention, but my son lives nearby so I'll find out.

Perhaps a better subject for a picture than in its heyday, John?
John Prior: Not sure about that, busy mills and busy canals, something of the past though.

I would like to say that this looks typically Yorkshire John, but to be honest it could be Derbyshire or other Northern places to my limited knowledge. I must swot up on this.
John Prior: All the area with greatest industrial heritage, something rather squandered.
I would imagine new homes or apartments will take it's place. The world doesn't need the small mills in every community anymore.
John Prior: Yes I would imagine new homes, some of the mills have been made into apartments, but often more costly to do than a new build.
Nice shot, John,where is this,int' grim North I suspect? smile
John Prior: Not so grim really, we do grim down south just as well smile
I like this John, another bit of our heritage on the way out though.
John Prior: Yes indeed Brian, I doubt if what replaces it will last so well.
love the wrecked building ... very cool find
John Prior: Thanks Crash
