Caxton Works

Caxton Works is a now derelict mill on the corner of Mary Street and Edward Street off Dukinfield Road and lying just North of the motorway.

I'll show you close-ups of the doorway and rooftop at a later date.

So sad to see a fine buiding spoilt by concrete and graffitis.
Les murs peuvent prendre la parole encore faut il avoir quelque chose à dire.
Walls can talk if only one has something to tell.

I hope it survives - I like it.

I like the art and the building. Hope both stay.

This is a hidden Gem in Hyde, easily overlooked but the detale is there for all to see if you just look.
Not sure what will be happening to this area, building work is going on across the road, other building by this one a let out to small firms. It a great building in a bad area where vandels are commen. There is a car pitch across from this that as ha a few owners, vandels would smash the cars up at night, the owners would sell up and move on... the present owners put a stop to the vandels and things seem busy there now.

it is sad that a beautiful building--probably built to last--goes derelict!

Will it be converted to flats?
