The Seminary

This College is a former Roman Catholic seminary, The foundation of the large building was laid in April 1880 and college was opened in 1883. The buildings have since been deconsecrated. This creepy place is the largest site I have explored to date, it even has an onsite abandoned church! The building is said to be haunted and with recent convictions of horrific abuse carried out by the priests in the 1970's and 80's this building is full of stories, history and an un-nerving atmosphere

Milbrook Slidings

 Preparations for a power station at Heyrod began in 1916 when 26 acres of land were purchased. The station was opened in 1926. Stalybridge, Hyde, Mossley and Dukinfield were all involved in the making of the power station. The cooling towers were constructed in the 1940s. Coal was delivered to the plant at Millbrook railway sidings on the Micklehurst Line, which is situated on the opposite side of the Huddersfield Narrow Canal. The sidings were built in 1932 and had space to hold up to 130 12-ton wagons. Coal was fed into a hopper underneath the sidings before being transported on an enclosed conveyor belt which emerged high above the valley to cross the River Tame and canal before entering the station at a high level. The station was closed on 29 October 1979 with a generating capacity of 64 megawatts. It was demolished during the 1980s, although part of the site is still used as an electrical substation.
