A few more of Hotspur Press in Manchester, this time taken with a proper camera!
As I was visiting Manchester anyway, I thought I’d park in the multi storey car park behind as it would allow me to get a different perspective on the place. I wanted to capture the contrast between the new and old Manchester and I think that this says it all really.
There’s very little history of the mill (Medlock Mill) online and there is nothing in any of my books. What I do know is that plans have been submitted to demolish part of it and retain the main bit. From what I can make out, the sheds at the rear will be cleared and a tower will be built over that area and it looks like the river will be covered over to form a thoroughfare through to where the multi-storey car park is that I stood in.
My thoughts – I’m glad they’re keeping the mill largely as is, but not sure of that tower!
