  1. The mill in the background as so many memories for.
    I could see this from my bedroon window each morning when I lived on Cheetham Fold Road.
    I remember it as a working mill and then it was shut for years. I played inside it, and explored every nook and cranny. I found my first barn owl's nest in the old boiler house. Where it said Gee Cross at the top a brick was missing and a Kestral nested there.
    I have watched the sun rise and set from the roof.
    I was sad to see it pulled down, but what is there now is more pleasing to the eye.
    Great Post
