Ivy Bank was another ruinous death trap, and I loved it so much I visited twice! My own personal death wish aside, I found it very photogenic even though I had to watch where I stood – the floor in some areas was distinctly spongy, and I erred on the side of caution and took one step on then backed off.
There’s a full history on my website as well as the digital colour photos I took on this visit. It’s noticeable that the sensor of the Nikon D70 I used has not coped with the skies as well as the film has, but its well known that the earlier generation of digital cameras did not have a great dynamic range. And this is why I returned a few weeks later with a tripod to take bracketed exposures so I could create HDR merges that you will see in the other website gallery here.
There were numerous pieces of machinery left in the burnt out section of the mill.
