Hartford Mill, Oldham - March 2014

We went to Oldham.

Oldham is a bit like Bolton, but a little more shit.

As you drive up the motorway towards the wonderful town of Oldham the vast Hartford Mill comes into view and slowly towers the outskirts of the town with its huge chimney.

Built in 1907 and abandoned 1992, this Grade II listed building has sadly been approved for demolition as it overshadows new housing developments in the area.

In we walked, as you do, an empty shell of a building yet full of charm.

Time is running out for this old Hartford Mill, the much promised demolition looms (it has for years to be honest but the end is now nigh) so be quick if your planning to go - it is worth it just for the views up top of Manchester and the Pennine Hills alone.
