Sun sets on Dawn Mill
Sun sets on Dawn Mill
In its heyday Shaw was famed for its many cotton spinning mills. The clatter of clogs is now only a faint echo. But soon it'll be ker-ching! - an Asda superstore is about to be built on the site.

Chris Allen writes: - The beautiful tiled room on the left is the former mill engine house that once house a George Saxon horizontal twin tandem compound built in 1902. The engine drove by ropes in to the rope race through the vertical rectangular slot. The rope race wall is the facing white/grey wall and three bearing boxes can still be seen in it with oil stains immediately below them.
