About

A view of the hidden parts around the inner sections around the city centre of Manchester UK and beyond. How you perceive these derelict sites could be a sort of morbid fascination, or logically analysing the modes and functionally of the remaining fragments of architecture. This blog is the stage 1 of 'Urban Exploration' but I have to emphasise, if you visit these places and tempted to gain access..I wouldnt advise it unless you seek permission from the appropriate authorities.

Chadderton Mill Air Raid Shelters

Chadderton Mill was built in 1895, by 2000, became empty, apart for one section close to Fields New Road that is used  by a company for storage. The air raid shelters can be seen from the Metrolink tram that runs from Manchester to Rochdale, while passing you can see the earth works and concrete structures. Most mills had air raid shelters, it appears that these are the only ones still intact across the Greater Manchester area. Not far from the mill was the Avro factory in Greengate, which built  the Lancaster bombers. Perhaps the mills in the area would have been prime targets, especially being close to Manchester.
