The Hotspur Press building on Cambridge Street was built in 1801 as a waterside textile mill and cotton warehouse called Medlock Mill. A hundred years later it was bought by the Percy brothers and turned into a printing press; it functioned as such continuously up until 1996. Since then, the building has been inhabited by squatters, occasionally evicted by police, but it was recently acquired by developers, who have yet to decide its fate.
