Burrs Mill, Bury was associated with the Peel family and built in the 1790’s. It later became a bleach works in the 1880’s. When the Second World War came and places were needed to keep POWs and internees – it seemed an odd choice – but I guess it had space! Not being purpose built, and considering its setting (by the river and canal) and being at the foot of the Pennines, it must have been a cold and damp place to live.
Massive thanks to everyone who viewed, commented, and faved yesterday’s image… Thank you ♥️
