Ram Mill
Ram Mill
Derelict substation. This shows nevertheless the attention to detail applied to even the smallest part of the complex, with decorative mouldings to the doorway and variations in brickwork to match the main building.
Ram Mill
One of a group of four still extant mills in the south west corner of Chadderton.
The use of banded yellow terracotta marks this out as the work of Stott and Sons, as opposed to Joseph Stott and Sons, or P. S. Stott. (Although from the same family, there were three separate architectural practices.)
The mill was built in 1907, with the intention of converting to a double mill later. This never happened, as indicated by the blank southern wall. The mill was powered by a 200hp cross-compound engine by George Saxon.
