Monochrome Moment: Tudno Mill


After a little holiday break, the photo blog returns with another "Monochrome Moment".

Today's photo shows the Tudno Mill, in Smith Street, off Manchester Road in Ashton. This was built in 1894 as Hill's Bakery. It is now Hill's biscuit factory, as can be detected by the nostrils of those passing through the area!

The building's clean lines and angles make it appear particularly dramatic in black and white.

See Google Street View of this location.

"Tudno Mill" is my contribution to "Monochrome Weekend". Please follow the link to visit other sites taking part.

    Meg,

    It was always been John Hill's. even though Bowdens bought it of George Hill, John's son, back at start of the last century. John Hill started out as a Master Grocer at 46 Stockport Road.

    Tudno is because of St Tudno the patron saint of the Great Orme, whoes Saints day is June 5th
