Beehive Mill, Bolton
Two large cotton spinning mills. No. 1 on the right was built in 1895 and retains its engine house while No. 2 on the left was built in 1902 and retains a severely truncated chimney with a modern stack up its centre. Now used as a distribution centre. In their day these were the largest spinning mills in the world.
