Cyprus Life – in pictures vs Fylde Coast Musings

Our new life in Cyprus began in early March 2004. Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas spending a glorious 12 years in Limassol. Feel free to read my posts and view my many #photosofCyprus. However in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We're now living on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea in the north west of England. More places for us to discover as this part of the UK is not so familiar to us either.

Heritage issues ‘at risk’ alert on Heywood mill building

It was such a shame to read this article today in the local rag we used to buy back home.

I lived just up the road from Crimble Mill and remember when it was in operation. It closed some years before we left UK to live permanently in Cyprus.

An old mill has been identified by English Heritage as an historic building at ‘immediate risk’.

The grade II listed Crimble Mill, on Crimble Lane, has appeared in the annual Heritage At Risk Register which was published on Tuesday.

The mill, built in the 19th century, has been given a category ‘A’ priority by English Heritage – a rating reserved for the most dilapidated buildings.

The conservation body has branded the condition of Crimble Mill, which still retains a rare water wheel housing, as ‘poor’.

They say the roof and gutters are leaking, windows missing and brickwork is decaying at upper levels.

I'm "Shell" or Michele - formerly a UK Expat living in Cyprus since March 2004. Sadly, we had to return to UK in April 2016 due to family illness. We now live "over Wyre" where the "River meets the Sea" at Knott End on Sea, Fylde coast, Lancashire.
