Edenwood Mill Stubbins
Built in 1801 Edenwood mill has been empty and derelict since 2001.

In the early part of the last century the factory was extended using red brick which was developed as a dyeing facility for Turnbull and Stockdale Limited, to complement their weaving, bleaching, printing and distribution activities.
Between 1968 and 2001 the Edenwood site was solely used as a specialist hand block printing factory.
In early 2007 the mill had plans passed which were to give a new lease of life to the empty mill and transform it into twenty five luxury apartments which would have seen the mill chimney and part of the red brick buildings being demolished.
The apartments were expected to range from 250,000 to 400,000 but with the
credit crunch of 2009 the whole site is now to be torn down which is no surprise as 2009 saw all the buildings totally vandalised and most of the roof tiles stolen as the latest picture taken in February 2009 above shows.
