Facit Mill, Whitworth, Lancashire
In 1968, when this photograph was taken, this mill and others nearby were still in business. The quarries in the distance supplied the York stone with which London's Trafalgar Square is paved.
Note added 2012/03/12: I have just been informed that Facit Mill was demolished about a week ago. Information courtesy Joan Furtado.
