This is the former mill at Hilden, site of the former Barbour Threads empire. To say this place fascinates me is an understatement. The site is huge and comprises several more large factories, some badly fire damaged, all derelict and disintegrating.
The factories here were built about 1823 and by the 1890's were considered to be the largest linen-thread manufacturing site in the world.
My FIL was a foreman at the mill many decades ago.

I thought these monotoned edits added a particularly nostalgic feel.
Many thanks for your visit.
