Raven Mill, Chadderton
Raven Mill, Chadderton
Photographed across the building site that has replaced Gem Mill. This view from here was just not there 18 months ago and it probably won't be there again in less time than that. Time and the demolition man is waiting for no-one in Oldham.
Raven Mill
Built to the designs of P. S. Stott in 1905, the tower shows the influence of the Art Nouveau style of the period. Although the chimney, slightly truncated, remains, the engine house has disappeared. The engine was of 1500 hp, by Buckley and Taylor.
Generally the fabric of this mill remains in good condition, probably due to the fact that it remains in single-ownership. It is the returns centre for a large international mail-order organisation.
