SD7306 : Horrockses Mill, Moses Gate

taken 7 years ago, near to Farnworth, Bolton, Great Britain

Horrockses Mill, Moses Gate
Horrockses Mill, Moses Gate
This site contained three mills dating from 1883-1920 and operated by Horrockses, Crewdson & Co Ltd. Closed as cotton mills in about 1960. These mills specialised in fine quiltings and cotton fancy goods. The foreground contained mills that have been cleared, exposing the impressive lump beyond. Unfortunately I was very tight on time and it was raining, hence the unimpressive photograph.
