Accessed the mill from Oldfield down a steep hill, had to clamber over 2 fences across the public right of way (with difficulty) but well worth it. Beautiful, atmospheric building. Could only see it from the outside as entry inside has been boarded off, probably for safety reasons. Well worth the short trek.
