Traditional stone mill cottages at Abbey Village,Lancashire UK. There used to be a working cotton mill here and these are the old mill cottages for the workers. The smallest , simplest ones were nearer the mill and bigger more ornate ones further away. These were for the higher ranks! The oldest ones were built in 1840 and the main part of the village grew up around the mill. I like the way that most of them have not been cleaned up as they give the village main street its character. I think the ones that have been sand blasted spoil the row, so do the conservation people. The satellite dishes also spoil the character of the village.
