Last Sunday I went to an abandoned mill that I have wanted to visit since I have lived here and went there late in the day. It had been very damp and foggy and I got of spooked there by myself.


The Barber Mills goes back to 1845 when four immigrant brothers fromIrelandestablised a paper mill along the Credit River. In 1888, one of the brothers, John Barber, equipped the mill to make wood pulp using hydro electric power generated threekilometersdownstream. The mill use to make wallpaper.


Here is what the mill looked like back in the 1860's...

and lots of interior shots but the lighting was hard and I did not bring my tripod and lenses as I did not realize I would be able to get inside and I did not want to go back to the car for fear of someone telling me to leave!!!
