Where we live!
We live in a stone-built 5/6 bedroom detached house in God's Own County of Yorkshire near
the historic village of Thornton, the home of the Bronte family of literary fame. Our
house is in a lovely quiet, private
valley with horses at the bottom of the garden and a stream running
through the field. But only 16 years ago one of Old Yorkshire's
finest mills stood where our house does today. Here are some pictures
of Blackburn's Mill and its demolition.
