The building that stands here, or this set of buildings, used to be part of a mill. It seems that I am being stalked by defunct mills. Not that every mill is a ruin, or that all of them have been built in red bricks. However, both seem very true in this context. This heap of bricks is just a derelict building now. Derelict is a word very close to ruin but it provokes a very different reaction. Ruin incites romantic feelings about the past, derelict on the other hand, is a condemnation, a condemned building, no longer fit to live in, without a past or a future.
