Comment
Albert Mill was situated at the junction of Albert Square and the High Street.
It was built in 1851 by Baldwin, Brown & Co for the manufacture of woollens.
During the Second World War it was used as a military store.
When the mill was demolished shops and the old Lecture Hall which had been adjacent to the mill on the High Street were also pulled down.
New shops were erected partly on the mill site, also bungalows for the elderly.
In this view the mill is undergoing demolition, a group of wooden market stalls are stacked against the wall.
