Falcon Mill, Victoria Street, Chadderton
Falcon Mill, Victoria Street, Chadderton
This is my third visit to this area and I have only just learnt that the big single storey building is an unusual (for Oldham) example of a weaving shed among the big spinning mills. Designed by P S Stott in 1885 for the Oldham Velvet Manufacturing Co. In 1915 it had 802 looms powered by an Urmson & Thompson engine.
Even though I took this shot for Falcon and have labelled it as such, my eye is drawn to the chimney and water tower of the more impressive Manor Mill.
