This is the spectacular Springfield Mill which was built in 1888 and surprisingly the clock is showing the right time. Once it housed lace making machines, but now the Grade 2 listed building has been converted into one hundred and five apartments.
The turrets on the outside wall contain spiral staircases. The detail of the brickwork on the octagonal chimney is very intricate and pleasing. The blue bricks are impressed with ‘Tamworth’, it’s a shame that birds have planted Elderflower bushes on the top!
The Red Lion stands on the opposite side of the canal and had similar brick detailing.
