Fitton Hill Road
The access to the various parts of Belgrave Mills. To the right are in sequence Nos. 1, 2, and 3, with the tower of No.4 mill to the left.
Belgrave Mills
Probably the largest single-site complex of mills in Oldham, it finally consisted of four separate mills. No.1, the original 1881 mill fronts Fitton Hill Road, with a later small extension onto Honeywell Lane. This part of the site is still occupied by various businesses. This was followed by No.2 mill, further east along Fitton Hill Road, which was a typical Stott mill. When visited in June 2010, the first stages of demolition of this building were under way. The tower does however support cellphone transmitters, so maybe it will survive. Both No.1 and 2 mills were steam powered. Next east is No.3 mill, built as an electric mill. This is still in occupation and has been recently re-roofed. To the north of this is No.4 mill, also electric from the outset, built in 1914. This too survives as industrial premises, retaining its smart tower at the west end.
