Photo: Old Glendale Mill

Near my house is what they use to call the Glendale Mill, mainly because it's not really there anymore. The mill was built from early planning in 1830 to finally shutting it's doors in the cotton industry in 1961. In 2004 even though it had been vacant, it caught fire and now it's in ruins. This tower and few other things is really the only things still standing for the mill. 


  1. I always have mixed thoughts about seeing wonderful buildings like this that were once full of vigour and now stand looking sad ...
    Appreciated your photograph.

    All the best Jan

  2. It's a wonder it doesn't fall over, suppose in time it will.
    Things of the past are always good to see and to know what they indeed were.

  3. It looks rather dangerous. It could fall down. Still, it's an interesting structure.

  4. Doesn't look too sturdy. I hope no one gets around it if it falls.

  5. It looks like one of those towers firemen practice jumping from.

  6. Why has no attempt been made to do some restoration work?
    after all it would have historical importance.
    Looks like another historical building being left to rake and ruin.
    Shame on the councillors of that area.

  7. That's too bad. I like historical buildings. They add character to an area.
