Sky Watch: Woodend Mill

Woodend Mill sits alongside the River Tame in Mossley with its tall stone chimney pointing towards the glow of the evening sky.

At one time there were more than 40 mills in Mossley. Woodend Mill is one of those remaining and its chimney is the only mill chimney remaining in Mossley. The interior of the mill is split up now and occupied by small businesses and by art and music enterprises.

As most of Mossley is situated in a steep-sided valley, it is in the shade of the hill while the low evening sun still illuminates the hills on the far side of the valley, with the clouds also taking on a slightly golden glow.

Sky Watch is a regular weekly feature on this photo blog. It links with websites all over the world with the general theme each week of looking upwards. Please take the opportunity to visit some of these other sites. I hope some new visitors have found their way here today, watching the skies!


  1. Wonderful that they preserved the mill and offered it to the business and arts communities! I'd love to tour though there.

  2. It would be nice to look up unto the hills and see the evening light.

  3. Sorry, I had an error in the link to the larger image. It is now corrected, so if you tried before, please try again now!

    Thank to Ian for drawing my attention to this!
