Helmshore Textile Museum is definitely a place to visit should you have the time. It isn't a dry and boring museum, but one in which the guides explain the history and demonstrate the equipment working.
I mentioned it was raining so the shots are all quick single shot grab shots really! I was using a 12-24mm Nikkor at its widest setting most of the time and really wasn't keen to get it wet. I must admit to being very impressed with this lens. Processing is courtesy of Photomatix Pro with a little twiddle in Lightroom ... mainly to get the watermark on the shot!
The last shot in this post is of the backs of nearby houses. I was somewhat amused by what seemed a plethora of wheelie bins of varying colours for all the different types of rubbish the locals generate!
