Continuing a series of images from some of the preserved mills of Northern England. For a black and white photographer the contrast, pattern and symmetry associated with the machines in these mills is a bit of a gold mine. Masson Mill, part of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site, was built in 1783 by Richard Arkwright on the banks of the River Derwent at Matlock Bath, and reflects the grandeur of its river gorge setting. Compared with other mills visited for this project, there is ample opportunity to photograph the details so that has been my focus for this portfolio.
