Jubilee Mill, also known as Pioneer Mill, was built in 1901 by the Pioneer Mill Co, established in 1900 to celebrate the jubilee of Waldsen Cooperative Society. Since 1992 the mill has belonged to the Gordon Riggs Garden Centre.

Love the mighty tower monument with the trees coming out of the top. Perfect choice for the letter J.

Very cool. I like old brick buildings and old industrial buildings in particular.

It will be a long way up to prune those trees. I do like brick mill chimney.

My first reaction was "Haven't we come a long way in aesthetics? Who would think of erecting a chimney today as a celebration." But we've gone full circle and I hope it remains as a monument to our hardworking past.
