SD8424 : Swims from Far Bank End Farm

Swims from Far Bank End Farm
Swims from Far Bank End Farm
This is a view looking north from Far Bank End Farm. The derelict building in the foreground is called Swims. It was inhabited until around the 1950s.
The derelict concrete building in the middle distance on the left was related to coal mining - it was the access point from the Grime Bridge colliery to the Lower Mountain Mine on the west side of the Bacup fault. It was known as Grime Bridge No. 3, or "Griff's Rough". It operated from 1954 to 1962.
The derelict building beyond that in the centre of the photo is Moss Barn (which has been rebuilt since this photo was taken) and beyond that is Water.
