ABC Wednesday
A is for Adamson's Mills

Adamson's Mills by the Peak Forest Canal were built before the turn of the 19th century. Joseph Adamson and Company was at one time known all over the world for their engineering skills and products. Boiler making was just one of their products. Joseph's uncle Daniel Adamson was the founder of the Manchester Ship Canal.

By 1981 as seen in Dr. Neil Clifton's photo the mills appeared derelict, but now they are just part of the flourishing Adamson Industrial Estate offering a wide range of office, industrial and trading units over an area of 165,000 sq. ft.

This part of the canal is called Over Yonder and on the other side is the Animal Shelter which can seen on Hyde Daily Photo.
