Question  057


I am a student at Bolton University and I am doing a photography project about dereliction, I am a resident of Ramsbottom and always remember Edenwood Mill at Stubbins being a derelict mill since I was very young. I also recalled the derelict farmhouse up near the Duckworth arms at Shuttleworth being an interesting building. I went out on a walk and took some good photographs of these buildings but when it came to looking into their history e.g. what they used to function as, what happened to them (why they became abandoned) there is barely any information on the internet. I found a little on Edenwood mill but none on the farmhouse at Shuttleworth apart from its name Windy Bank Farm. I was wondering if you had any information on these buildings it would be a huge help and much appreciated
