Greenfield Mill, Colne

Greenfield Mill, Colne - Lancashire Textile Mills
North Valley Road through Colne used to be lined with several sister mills to the Smith & Nephew Brierfield Mills, but all have been demolished and replaced with shiny new supermarkets and car dealerships which gives a veneer of modernity to impress people passing through. But away from this facade is another typical East Lancashire mill town - terraced houses and a few crumbling mills (most have been demolished).

A sprawling complex of various mills butts up to the river north of the town centre. There wasn't much that interested me on an individual basis, but I liked this scene looking down the river.
