The ruins of Ashworth Mill photographed during our walk on 4 October 2015. I cannot find out much about this mill other than its name which appears on maps dating back to the mid/late 19th Century. We originally approached the mill from the West having took the wrong path which resulted in us being unable to cross the river. Quickly retracing our steps we were soon walking through the ruins.
The only major walls standing viewed as we approached the site.
View of the waterfall and part of a mechanism that probably worked the waterwheel.
Looking up at the wall from the river, this was once a substantial building but like other mill sites I have seen is slowly being reclaimed by nature.
Naden Brook heads South after passing the mill, this would at one time have supplied the power for the mill. Stones from the mill and retaining walls along the banking littered the stream bed.
View from the other side of the stream.
Man made waterfall next to the mill.
My interest in ships and the sea started back in 2006 when I worked for a couple of years on the banks of the River Mersey. I have since been on a couple of cruises around the Med and in the Far East and have started to take more interest in researching and photographing some of the ships and other vessels seen on my travels.
