After ten years living aboard Gecko and cruising each year from March - November, we have decided to spend the winter months ashore. To facilitate that we have sold the house we let for holidays in Bath and are looking for a bungalow  in Lancashire. In the meantime we are renting a flat in an old cotton mill in Preston.

Centenary Mill was built in 1895 by Horrocks Ltd to celebrate their centenary.
Horrockses Fashion Off the peg style in the 40's and 50's V&A

It closed in the 1960s but was converted to 180 flats about ten years ago.

This impressive  entrance hall

was originally the engine hall

Which looked like this, apparently
