Swan Lane Mills

Swan Lane Mills
The Swan Lane No.3 Mill was built in 1914 to the design of Stott & Sons of Oldham. The Swan Lane Spinning Co Ltd. finally closed the mill in 1963 and it is now partly occupied by a range of businesses. It is listed Grade II* but is on the register of buildings at risk. This is one of several similar rainheads peeping over the parapet and reflecting the name of this fine mill. I wonder whether it was ever painted white?
