2013 was a very demanding year – my grandparents traumatic struggle with dementia and illness which resulted in my grandfather’s death in December, a change of role at work which saw me traveling overseas regularly and moving house (just up the road) – meant photography got shunted further down the list of priorities. I did manage to pay a few visits to see Wesley Street Mill in Bamber Bridge being demolished but that was all.
Wesley Street Mill – July / August 2013
Wesley Street Mill was only about ten minutes from home but it’s one I never explored. Not sure why, I just never felt moved to do so for some reason. As I passed it on the way home, I did manage to swing by a few times to get a few photographs during the demolition process. The site did lie empty for several years, but is now finally being built on.
