Tean Hall Mills

We have recently started work on a project recording the power system at Tean Hall Mills, Staffordshire. Although this is a very traditional 'industrial archaeology' brief, we are also taking the opportunity to record more ephemeral aspects of the recent history of the site. Some examples from a preliminary visit are shown below. We will also be recording grafitti left by local kids (mainly on the subject of their drug experimentation) whilst the building was abandoned.
