Another from 2011, August, visited with the Urban Spaceman.
First off thanks to Judderman for pushing me in this direction, this site did not disappoint.
Park up and a few steps of a walk you find the wonder that is ********,
this pigmentation factory closed in 2006, perhaps due to the poor
marketing in the Derbyshire area ?
First off we have a row of cottages, doors open, some kicked in, but all windows put thru
Amazingly post was still being delivered, with TV licence
chasers and this weeks electorial role forms delivered via the open
windows (the postman must love this place, given that its in the middle of nowhere).
The site had been visited the usual rapscallions and scumbags, the houses had been stripped of all the
metal, but the main mill was wide open, very well intact and a sight for
sore eyes after some of the recent places we had visited on our travels.
Thru the round window, we have labs !
Its at this point I must warn any intrepid explorer that I have read
this place is haunted, but they would say that - the fact is this place
is a lonely silent place but the doors in the factory like to bang, the
trees like to play tunes on the roof.
These doors we kept shutting only for them to swing open and bang loudly
Now, casual reader, these wellies (wellington boots) signify the true meaning of Urbex. I will explain.
As an true urbexer you don't vandalise places, you don't thieve and in this case these wellies have been in this room for years. If you ever see photos of this factory you will always get the wellie shot, they move around the room alot but you always get the wellie shot.
Sadly the place has gone downhill and a few months later I got the following message
"Love your treatment of these photos! My friend and
myself went a few days before Christmas and it's so sad how the site has
deteriorated in those few short months. All the houses are boarded up
and notices of prosecution are all around. Mind you, it was chucking it
down with rain as well which didn't help!"
