Last time I posted about the Clarence Mill it was half pulled down and well on its way to being a fully cleared site. Well you won't be at all surprised that nothing is ever so straight forward in this wonderful town. I'd already mentioned how slow the demolition was, well 'slow' turned into 'stopped altogether'. Shortly after I posted the contractors, who apparently hadn't been paid for some time, walked off the site and nothing happened for several months. A few weeks ago work started again and so we are down now to this stump and a huge pile of bricks. So what do you reckon? Another year before this place is finally cleared? Or maybe two?

The weekend in black and white is here.


  1. Nothing ever seems to run smoothly. At least the demolition has progressed a bit.

  2. Sounds quite familiar- there's an old inn here in a state of partial ruin thanks to the stupidity of a worker, and the owner seems unable to get the work done.

  3. Very interesting B&W!
