Gee Cross Mill, Gate Post

Here are three shots of the gateposts that belonged to Gee Cross Mill on Apethorn Lane. Now ,sadly ,all that is left of this fine building. The site was taken over after demolision and used as land for private housing.

The gateposts were to the left of the building, as seen on this photo.

Will add some more photos to it when I've been down and taken some of the houses that stand there now.

Very nice website, I find this website very informative and focused on topic. I have just came across that webpage and found out it has a potential to be watched by ample of users across the internet, but it looks like it could have more backlinks.

I personally use this service for my own websites, which helps them gain lot of exposure and better position in search eninges. You might think about to take a look at that seo services if you would like to get more exposure to your site.
