Mill Collapse

This was the scene at Carrhill Mill in Bottom Mossley a few weeks ago after part of the the mill collapsed. Although there are plans to redevelop the site, the mill was still in use for storing furniture, and people had been working in the building only a few hours before the collapse.

Carrhill Mill was one of the later mills in Mossley, built of brick rather than the more traditional stone used in the town. It was designed to house heavy textile machinery, making its collapse more surprising.
