so is this all apartments now [I see lights on]. It's so quiet and still and not how it used to be with all the workers

I used to work in there and would love to see one of the apartments.

What a difference.
In the days when the mill was working a P.C. was put on traffic control in Wallgate, at the junction with Miry Lane, when the factory workers were leaving to let them safely cross the road. On one occasion a colleague of mine (not me or Albert) was waving the traffic through, whilst the factory girls were waiting to cross when one of them shouted " Come on Bobby, put your hand up." He replied " Don't tempt me."
Thanks for the good photo Andrew I couldn't resist telling the story.
