SJ8397 : Chorlton New Mill

taken 10 years ago, near to Manchester, Great Britain

Chorlton New Mill
Chorlton New Mill
The corner block with the two arched openings for a former double beam engine house is the block of 1845. The block leading to the chimney is the original 1814 mill. This is believed to be the oldest surviving example of fireproof mill construction in Greater Manchester.
The complex is well documented and well described in M Williams with D A Farnie, Cotton Mills in Greater Manchester, 1992. This was in association with RCHM(E) and is suitably erudite.
Returning to the mill, the opening up of the engine room arches is welcome but the roof garden and chimney balcony are dubious.
