SD9105 : Osborne Street

taken 8 years ago, near to Oldham, Great Britain

Osborne Street
Osborne Street
Named after the mills on the right hand side. These are the oldest part of Osborne (No.1) Mill, clearly indicated by the architectural style with relatively small windows. Several stages of construction are visible. In the distance are the tower and chimney of Manor Mill.
The eagle-eyed will be able to make out (on the high resolution version) a bench mark incised into the corner stone just above and to the left of the road name plate.
Osborne Mills
An interesting complex of buildings in varying architectural styles. The original mill, later known as No.1, was built in 1873 and extended in 1891 and 1900. No.2 mill was a further addition in 1912 in the more modern style of architecture with a greater proportion of window to wall, designed by P. S. Stott. There were separate engine houses to No.1 and No.2 mills. Closed as a spinning mill in 1968 but now in multiple business/industrial use.
