St George's Works Mill, Lancaster
Now demolished, this remnant of the largest Victorian manufactory in the world was part of Lord Ashton’s oilcloth producing business; an enterprise that in its heyday comprised a site of nearly 90 acres with its own railway, tramway and eventually a power station. This building, with its innovative steel frame and cast iron columns, has stood by the River Lune for over 150 years.
Thanks to the Lancaster and District Heritage Group for researching the history of this building, and for letting me use their information.
