My House, Harper Mill

Harper Mill built 1855 in Ashton-under-Lyne Tameside England.
Known locally as Pickles mill, who owned it and had the name, ‘M PICKLES’ in large while letters high up, on the south wall.
The old cotton mill was devastated by fire and partially collapsed on the night of December 4th 1999. It never reopened.
Sailbridge Homes, turned it from a black hulk into 48 bright new apartments in 2004. Not all of the mill was saved and about a third was never rebuilt.
I moved here in November 2005.
