Masson Mill, Matlock Bath, Derbyshire

Weaving Hall, Masson Mill, Matlock Bath, UK
Richard Arkwright's cotton mill - the Masson Mill in Matlock Bath was built in 1783 and produced cotton till 1991, now turned into a museum. Me and my daughter were the only visitors so the whole experience was a bit austere. Huge halls full of machines, threads, bales of materials and not a living soul. All looks and feels as if the workers had just left, with the smell of the old workshop still strong.
