Plans have just been put forward showing the development of this area. I wonder if the "credit crunch" will further delay this project.

Where is the enterprise that built these wonderful places, why can't they be put to good use? There should be a pride in these places that continues.

The Mill is a English Heritage listed building for what that's worth.

I worked there in the 60s - think I'm in need of listing too
