Built as a silk mill in the Queen Anne style by James Gosling Smith for William Broster between 1893-94. Waterloo Mill also known as Broster’s Mill is of such a high build quality for its time that it was designed to be fire proof.

The mill was eventually taken over in the later half of the 20th century by Lux Lux Ltd, a lingerie manufacturer from Glossop. It finally closed before the end of the century. In 2003 the owner of the mill was granted permission to convert it into apartments.

The mill was given a Grade II listing on 14 October 1996.

Hidden In Plain Sight – post 10

The Arch Lodge

This is the Jacobean styled lodge house to Westwood Hall. It was built in 1852 and was part of the works that were being carried on enlarging the Hall. The work was commissioned by John Davenport Jnr and was almost certainly designed by Hadfield, Weightman & Goldie.

The lodge is now a private residence and has a god awful ugly, unsympathetic extension to increase the living space on its left side (please note I have tried to exclude it).

It was granted a Grade II listing on 27 May 1975.

Balancing Act

This week has been seriously nerve-wracking, I had an Pre-Operation Assessment for an elective surgery that I pushed for over 18 months ago, although I really don’t want to go into details about what the operation is for, all I’m willing to say is that it’s something to help with my self-esteem issues and no, it is not a boob job!

But now my anxiety levels are extremely high and the slightest thing is setting off a severe panic/anxiety attacks which is making me re-think whether this surgery is a good idea. I’ve spoken to 2 of my doctors who have both assured me that in the long run it will worth it and that any set backs in my recovery can be addressed and will be out-weighed by the results from the surgery. However, this doesn’t stop me worrying and that nagging little voice in my head that picks away at my confidence is shouting at me, what if goes wrong, what if you have a bad reaction to the anaesthetic, etc, etc.

I really don’t want to waste the time of all the NHS staff that have helped me to get to this point but I’m terrified of it going wrong somehow. My husband just tells me to do what I think is best and I just want someone to tell me what to do like when I had to have my thyroid removed because I had no choice, it had to go or it was going to kill me in the long run as the meds couldn’t control it.

What should I do, I want to feel more like my old self and this will be one step closer but what if…

This is Westwood Hall, a magnificent building with a Jacobean styled exterior. The original building that stood on this site is said to have belonged to King Henry VIII’s favourite Knight, Francis Talbot. The manor was built at some point during the 17th century before being brought by John Davenport Snr (founder of Davenport Pottery) in 1813. He had the manor remodelled about 1820. The Hall was inherited by John Davenport Jnr (a lawyer) and he commissioned Hadfield, Weightman & Goldie to enlarge the Hall in 1850-53.

The Hall has been in use as a school since 1920 and is now known as Westwood High School & 6th Form College. The Hall suffered major fire damage in the mid 1980’s after 2 pupils broke in to steal from the school tuck shop & used matches to illuminate their passage through the building. Thankfully the Hall was restored to its former glory but at the time it cost £15,000 which was a massive sum of money. The Hall was given a Grade II listing on 10 March 1975.

The Summerhouse

The Summerhouse

The octagonal summerhouse was built during the 1850’s enlargement of the main Hall and was given a Grade II listing of its own on 14 October 1996.

February 19, 2013 /Photography News/ Here are some versions of Murphy’s laws which often relate to us, photographers. Feel free to add yours in the comment section below.
1. You are not Ansel Adams.
2. Neither are you Herb Ritz.
3. If a photo shoot goes too smoothly, then the lab will lose the film.
4. Photo assistants are essential, they give photographers someone to yell at.
5. Weather never cooperates.
6. If it works in your home, it will fail on location.
7. The newest and least experienced photographer will usually win the Pulitzer.
8. The nature shots invariably happen on two occasions:
    -when animals are ready
    -when you’re not
9. Flash will fail as soon as you need it.
10. A camera is a magnet for dust, mud…

These Gothic styled chapels were designed by William Sugden and built in 1870 at the main civil cemetery. The chapels are now a chapel of rememberance and a registrars office (only part-time). They were granted a Grade II listing on 7 June 1972.

I really can’t find much more information on this beautiful building but if and when I do, I promise to add an update.
