Take it you mean Millers the wheelchair place? That's not very nice is it!
Millers is still there. Ossie Mills is where the weaving sheds were.

Its the old brickworks on the Clayton side of Whinney Hill.
A small part of the old pond is still there, and full of Newts.
I can remember riding on the conveyor belt that went through a tunnel under whinney Hill when I was a boy. "You can see it in the picture"
You had to jump off just before it went into the "Rock crusher"!!

Owd Bert has sent a couple of photos to conclude Quiz 5:

First one is an additional view of the old Nori Brickworks taken from Whinney Hill and the other from a roughly similar position-- used the remaining water and the once Girls High School, now Moorhead, as a means of location.
