Buildings of Historical Interest at Freshford Mill -Peradins

The photographs below taken at the end of December 2006 are of the older buildings located at Freshford Mill - the former Peradins factory site in Somerset.  The rare bats are roosting, or used to roost in one or more of these buildings but owing to lack of security and vandalism their peace has been disturbed.

All the buildings are open to intruders due to door and windows being opened up by destruction of glass and removal of poorly secured boarding.

The proper solution to secure windows would have been to fix 18mm plywood panels on the inside with expansion bolts. Or clamp similar panels both inside and outside held together by bolts with security nuts. This "wire netting" could be removed by hand!
