SJ8598 : Mills at Ancoats

taken 10 years ago, near to Manchester, Great Britain

Mills at Ancoats
Mills at Ancoats
This view is practically identical to mine of 1992 SJ8598 : Ancoats Mills except the mills are now much cleaner and have been/are being converted to dwellings. This is a very important complex of mills that were immortalised by L S Lowry and have featured in early books on industry.
I spent the best part of an hour here with a camera and have posted several views of this complex.
