Volcrepe, Glossop

A trip to the very edge of Derbyshire with the Urban Spaceman

An interesting little wander, the two main mills straddle a country road just off the main drag in Glossop.

Also known as Woods Mill, this was once home of Volcrepe from about 1931 until 2002 who manufactured rubber shoe soles and wonderful items for the Ministry of Defence such as gas masks for horses.

The mills are in various states of decay, from ok to thrashed.
