SD8903 : Whitegate Lane

taken 8 years ago, near to Chadderton, Oldham, Great Britain

Whitegate Lane
Whitegate Lane
Terraced houses with Ace Mill in the background. This central group of houses appears to have had new fronts built at some stage. The houses follow the line of Whitegate Lane, an old rural thoroughfare, now superseded by Broadway.
Ace Mill
One of a group of four still extant mills in the south west corner of Chadderton.
A relatively late mill, built in 1914 to the design of P. S. Stott. It did not commence use as a spinning mill until 1919, having been used for aircraft manufacture during the Great War. Architecturally it appears as the least imposing of the group of four mills in this part of Chadderton, as the tower that was usually a prominent feature is tucked away from the main thoroughfare and is less striking than many. Stylistically, the engine house is the only part of the building visible to the casual passer-by which shows any significant detailing. Inside was a large 2000 hp cross-compound engine by Urmson and Thompson.
In (apparently flourishing) industrial occupation in June 2010.
